The WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) in Schools movement is gaining momentum, evidenced by an increase in international and local attention and funding, the development of school-based resources, and implementation designs for schools all over the world, including a “Call to Action for WASH in Schools,” launched in April 2010. The objective is to create and maintain “WASH-Friendly Schools” that have safe and healthy environments, including adequate facilities for hygiene and sanitation that allow children to be healthier and more attentive. Since it is estimated that fewer than half of the schools in the world have access to drinking water, and even fewer have access to adequate sanitation, this situation is critical. The present WASH-Friendly Schools Basic Guide for School Directors, Teachers, Students is now a tested package that HIP has adapted from countryspecific models for use in schools, communities, governments, and organizations anywhere.
