WASH in orphanages

Due to on-going epidemics such as HIV/AIDS as well as an increase in world conflicts, more children than ever are becoming orphans. Left with no one to take care of them, many orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) end up in overcrowed institutions, with failing infrastructure. OVCs is a social group that is currently not represented in the WASH sector. Whether the orphanages are private or belong to the state, the institution must provide children with WASH facilities, services, and behaviour education.
