UNICEF is supporting the construction of gender sensitive, WASH facilities in rural, hard to reach schools. This is being achieved by connecting schools to community water supply systems, construction of reservoir tanks and gutters for rain-water harvesting, construction of separate, appropriate latrines for girls, boys and teachers within prioritised schools. Emphasis is also given to hygiene promotion, development and dissemination of Information Education Communication materials, menstrual hygiene management to promote proper WASH practices.
