This toolkit has been developed following the FRESH (Focusing Resources on Effective School Health) framework, which has been created through a partnership of UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO, and the World Bank.

The Toolkit consists of the following five main sections:

  1. Why this toolkit?: background information on school hygiene, sanitation, and water and their impact on the Millennium Development Goals.
  2. Basic principles: the basic guidelines for school hygiene, sanitation, and water projects in six key areas: policy environment, life skills-based hygiene education, technology choice, financing options, stakeholder participation, and capacity building. 
  3. Sector assessment: an overview of the major opportunities for and constraints on school hygiene, sanitation, and water, and outlines a strategy that deals with the key issues that need to be addressed to ensure successful implementation of school hygiene, sanitation, and water interventions.
  4. Project cycle: a step-by-step presentation of the project cycle for school hygiene, sanitation, and water projects, emphasising interactive processes and full stakeholder involvement from promotion through evaluation.
  5. Resourcestools, readings, useful links, and a glossary for school hygiene, sanitation, and water projects.

An introduction to the Toolkit was published as a working paper:
