  6. WASH in Schools Enabling Environment Building Blocks for Country Action Planning

  7. WinS within the SDGs: Target 4.a Build and upgrade education facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive and provide safe, non-violent, inclusive and effective learning environments for all 4.a.1 Proportion of schools with access to:… (e) basic drinking water; (f) single-sex basic sanitation facilities; and (g) basic handwashing facilities (as per the WASH indicator definitions) Target 6.1 By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all 6.1.1 Proportion of population using safely managed drinking water services Target 6.2 By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations 6.2.1 Proportion of population using safely managed sanitation services, including a hand-washing facility with soap and water

  8. Service ladders allow for progressive realization Drinking water Sanitation Hygiene Advanced service To be defined at national level Advanced service To be defined at national level Advanced service To be defined at national level Basic service Drinking water from an improved source is available at the school Basic service Improved facilities, which are single-sex and usable at the school Basic service Handwashing facilities, which have water and soap available Limited service There is an improved source (piped water, protected well/spring, rainwater, bottled water), but water not available at time of survey Limited service There are improved facilities (flush/pour flush, pit latrine with slab, composting toilet), but not sex-separated or not usable Limited service Handwashing facilities with water, but no soap No service No water source or unimproved source (unprotected well/spring, tanker-truck surface water source) No service No handwashing facilities at the school or handwashing facilities with no water No service No toilets or latrines, or unimproved facilities (pit latrines without a slab or platform, hanging latrines, bucket latrines) The WASH Sustainable Development Goals– UNICEF for every child

  11. Project Activities (Hardware) • Double/ Triple Block latrine • Urinal Room • Group Hand Washing Station • Over head tank Installation • Piping System

  12. Software Activities • Participatory Hygiene education sessions well arranged for school children to promote WASH related practices such as hand washing, proper use and maintenances of WASH facilities in line with 3 Star approach • Train teachers as WASH focal person and Parents-Teacher Associations to support and promote WASH in school and O&M and sustainability of WASH facilities • Ensure that schools initiated (Thant Shin Star-3 Star approach) for WASH in schools with proper plans • Community mobilization (PTAs, local authorities and community)

  13. Software Activities • Encourage and support to ensure daily group hand washing activities before meal time supervised by teachers and students leaders (Aim: repetition of good practice towards behavior change) • Daily supervised use of drinking water • (1-2 liters/child/day) • Safe disposal of waste • Encourage school teachers to support girls in MHM knowledge and facilities

  14. Three Stars innovating WASH in Schools worldwide

  15. SIMPLE Small doable changes Cost-effective Evidence-based Systems Approach Intersectoral Multi-stakeholder Community involvement The principles of the Three Star Approach for WASH in Schools Sustainable Realistic budgeting Saving resources Contributing to national & international goals Scalable Stepwise & modular Adaptable Predictable cost

  16. First step: reaching Basic (SDG) WinS Services (1 star) National Standards for WASH in Schools 3 Stepwise realization of National Standards Enhanced WASH in Schools Services 2 Minimum WASH in Schools Services 1 0 Services below minimum or noservices

  17. 3- Star Approach for WASH in Schools Step-by-Step Improvement to reach National Standard

  18. 3 Star Approach provides innovative opportunities • Focus on operation & maintenance of existing facilities strengthens school management/governance • Realistic/attainable minimum standards encourage action • Streamlined monitoring aligned with SDGs and national WinS policies • Accreditation and benchmarking of schools to ensure quality • Use of systemic incentives for incremental improvements

  19. Our hands our future!!Lets work together to realize our VISION!

  20. Innovative solutions to Menstrual Health & Hygiene • November 2017

  21. A comprehensive approach to MHM: Five elements:

  22. Suggested MHM indicators under SDGs

  23. Key Messages (1) • WinS Knowledge Management: • SDG WinS baseline report and support improved monitoring mechanisms for WinS • Update and disseminate the Call to Action for WinS • Sponsor research on WinS to improve the knowledge base for enhanced programme design and more effective advocacy

  24. Key Messages (2) • Advocacy & Partnerships: • Advocacy to raise the profile of WinS and resources mobilization together with the Education sector • Encourage institutionalization of WASH within the Education Sector. • Strengthen partnerships around WinS through regional and global network like the WASH in School Network, Sanitation and Water for All and the 'Call to Action' for WASH in Schools. • Promoting WinS at Scale: • advocate and support the expansion of proven cost-effective interventions • Work at school level to further develop and refine evidence-based intervention models e.g. the Three Star Approach

  25. Key Messages (3) • Focus on Improving WinS Enabling Environment: • Develop models to reduce bottlenecks for upscaling, such as the high cost of water supply. • Promote and support the development and continuous functioning of coordination platforms • Continued technical support to national governments to strengthen enabling environment
