This case study focuses on Oxfam’s education programme in Viet Nam where Oxfam has worked closely with local partners to improve water and sanitation facilities in schools and to increase children’s understanding of good hygiene habits. Oxfam’s experience in Viet Nam shows that WASH activities can be successful as part of a larger model to improve the learning environment in schools and promote a child-centred approach to teaching methods. This case study is part of a series designed to illustrate how Oxfam GB has been working with partner organisations, schools and communities to integrate water, sanitation and hygiene into education programmes to tackle some of the biggest obstacles that prevent children from going to school.
