Abstract: Water is a human right that is fundamental for various livelihoods and a basic natural resource for socio-economic development. Access to good water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education promotes good health and enhances national development. This paper describes how the intervention of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects in 11 rural primary schools, by KINNAPA organization in collaboration with WaterCan, improved school performance and created better learning environments for students from pastoralist families in Kiteto, Tanzania. This paper also highlights the specific challenges of working with pastoralist, nomadic societies, and how focusing on school WASH activities can have a positive impact on hygiene behaviour change in these pastoralist, transient communities.
