Final Report

School children washing their hands

Highlights

Every child around the world deserves an opportunity to learn in a safe and healthy environment. Schools are places where children actively stay for most of the day time. Therefore for a healthy and conducive learning environment, children need safe water for drinking and hand washing, and safe and friendly-to-use sanitation facilities. Improved health and quality learning is not possible without adequate water and sanitation facilities in schools. School children who have no access to safe water and sanitation have more chances to suffer from water and sanitation-related diseases. Lack of safe water and sanitation facilities turn schools into unsafe places where diseases are transmitted with mutually reinforcing negative impacts on the children, their families, communities and overall development.
