This study investigated impact and sustainability of school interventions for water, sanitation and hygiene education (WASH). It was carried out in one hundred schools spread over three districts (Nairobi, Mombasa, Kwale). In each school a range of data collection methods was used : interviews with teachers, observations of school facilities, observations of handwashing practices of one thousand children, classroom voting by four thousand nine hundred children and small group discussions with children in sixteen schools. The schools had an average population of about one thousand pupils. Schools had varying inputs in terms of construction of water, sanitation or handwashing facilities or training of teachers and children. [authors abstract]
