Raising Clean Hands: Advancing Learning, Health and Participation through WASH in Schools

Fulfilling every child’s right to water, sanitation and hygiene education remains a major challenge for policymakers, school administrators and communities in many countries. In a group of surveyed developing countries, less than half of primary schools have access to safe water and just over a third have adequate sanitation. Lack of coverage data for WASH in Schools is one barrier to securing the rights of children. Of the 60 developing countries surveyed, only 33 provided data on access to water in primary schools and 25 have data on sanitation.
