Bringing Clean Water to Schools in Peru
On Wednesday, Peru’s Country Director, Eduardo Contreras, spoke about the current water and sanitation project being implemented in a school in Cajamarca, Peru.

Solar rooftop panels on the school heat water for school use, utilizing the area’s natural sustainable resources while cutting costs to the local school and the larger program.
Identifying pathways to well-managed school sanitation services in low-income countries
This dissertation analyzes case schools in Peru, Belize, and Bangladesh to identify causal pathways to continued (and discontinued) maintenance of school sanitation services post-intervention. A novel method, Qualitative Comparative Analysis, facilitates the evaluation of collective influences and offers multiple models or a "roadmap" of conditions that provide high likelihood for continued maintenance of school sanitation.
