Safe and child-friendly water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools improves health, boosts education achievement, promotes gender equity and has a positive impact on communities. However, most schools in developing countries lack even basic water and sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programmes are often inadequate. Together with its partners, UNICEF is helping to address these gaps through a stronger emphasis on WASH in Schools advocacy and programming. A key part of this effort is the “Call to Action for WASH in Schools” campaign, a joint initiative involving a number of stakeholders including CARE, Dubai Cares, Emory University Center for Global Safe Water, IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, Save the Children, UNICEF, Water Advocates, WaterAid, Water For People and WHO. It calls on decision-makers to increase investments and on concerned stakeholders to plan and act in cooperation – so that all children go to a school with child-friendly water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.
