This manual provides information on a number of essential topics related to WASH in schools and contains relevant activity sheets. Parts of the manual can be used for training and orienting officials and trainers from education, engineering and health departments as well as rural development officials and trainers. Within WASH in schools programmes, this book can be used: for planning new programmes and setting strategies; for district training and planning workshops (select the topics and exercises that are most relevant for those who attend training); to train trainers from NGOs and other institutions focusing on WASH in schools; for orientation of district and department officials, education officers and head teachers, public health engineering staff and contractors, leaders of other institutions such as NGOs and CBOs; for setting up monitoring activities in the district, block, cluster and community; and for training field workers to work with communities on group mobilisation, technology selection and design. The manual can also be used to prepare or adapt school teaching and learning materials. However, on its own it is not sufficient for classroom activities.
