TDS: Preparatory Readings for our Thematic Discussion on "Managing WASH in Schools - Is the Education Sector ready?"

+++BACKGROUND READINGS+++


Dear Forum Members,

To help stimulate discussion and provide general background information on the topic, we suggest the following background readings:

(1) UNICEF/GIZ. Field Guide: The Three Star Approach for WASH in Schools
The 27-page publication presents the so-called Three Star Approach for WASH in Schools, designed to improve the effectiveness of hygiene behaviour change programmes for children. In the Three Star Approach, schools are encouraged to take simple, inexpensive steps outlined in the Field Guide.

(2) GIZ/SEAMEO. Scaling-Up the Fit for School Program: Sisattanak District Experience
The 17-page brochure describes how Sisattanak District (Lao PDR) was able to scale-up the Fit for School program to all primary schools in the area. The publication analyzes the structures, processes and mechanisms that were applied to successfully scale-up the program with limited resources and without much external support.

(3) GIZ/SEAMEO. School Community Manual: Lao PDR
The 72-page manual provides practical support in implementing school health programs based on the Fit for School Approach. It outlines the practical steps for school
heads, teachers, parents and community members on how to support and engage in activities based on the Fit for School Approach. The manual provides guidance on cleaning, operation and maintenance, as well as regular and structured monitoring.

We hope that these readings provide you with a good introduction to the topic!

If you would like to add to the list, feel free to post below.

Thank you,
Katrin
