The desire to address the critical need for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools is gaining momentum worldwide. The lack of clean drinking water, toilet facilities for girls and boys and good hygiene practices in schools has a negative impact on the health and cognitive abilities of the entire school population, leads to absenteeism and affects girls especially hard.
This webinar highlights HIP's experience fostering a supportive environment and models for WASH-Friendly Schools in Madagascar and Ethiopia and materials developed to help schools become WASH-friendly.
Presentation by Sarah Fry, USAID-HIP Senior Hygiene Programming Advisor, followed by a Q&A with Sarah and Julia Rosenbaum, USAID-HIP Deputy Director. Moderated by Patricia Mantey, USAID-HIP Knowledge Management Specialist.
