Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Dear WG7-members,
The WASH in Schools Network (UNICEF, GIZ, SC, WATERAID; Emory, LSHTM, among others) has compiled a  knowledge map  with links to relevant materials about COVID-19 for learners, their families and the education system. The map is intended for the time when schools are closed and in preparation for re-opening of schools.

We want to help you navigate through the jungle of information about COVID-19, specifically its relevance for the school community. Therefore, we selected relevant information from reliable sources with high quality for the education system, families and for pre-primary, primary and secondary school children.

We will update the material regularly and include new or currently overlooked material. If you come across helpful websites, links or videos, please respond in this thread or write a mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  We will check it carefully and include it in our knowledge map, if high quality is provided.

Best regards,
Bella Monse, WG 7 Co-lead

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Buenos días:
Muchas Gracias por la información y me gustaria recibir toda la información. 
Trabajo en Bolivia con proyectos de Desarrollo Comuniario y Fortalecimiento Institucional, en Municipios de Oruro, Cochabamba, Tarija y Santa Cruz, y somos socios con el sector de salud y educación, para desarrollar procesos de Educación Sanitaria y Ambiental en las escuelas, coordinando con los Profesores, personal de salud, padres de familia y con los alumnos. Este material sería de gran ayuda para estos momentos.

Muchas gracias nuevamente, y atento a recibir sus noticias.

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Dear Dr.Bella,
Thanks once again.

We are working in 53 government schools in 2 districts in Tamilnadu - covering about 5300 children - girls and boys. Girls also get info, inputs and training on menstrual hygiene.

I have asked the team to translate the 'knowledge map' in Tamil (the local vernacular) with appropriate acknowledgement in the footer running through the document.  I shall share with you the final translation and also our experience thus on WASH in the government schools in the state. I shall also upload this in our website - free download and no tags attached.

I hope this meets your consent.

Thanks and regards
Dr. T K NATHAN
CHAIRMAN & ED KKF,

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Hi! I found the Knowledge Map very interesting and useful for this delicate time we're going through. Is there any chance to have this document in Spanish? As I read some posts earlier, it will be very useful for Latinamerican context. If it isn't available yet, I can provide translation english to spanish! And I can finish it as soon as possible. Let me know.

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Hi Pamela,
Welcome to the SuSanA discussion forum! I was looking over older posts and noticed that you hadn't received a response to your question yet. I have sent an e-mail to the authors of the Knowledge Map for WASH in schools and coronavirus, so you should see an answer posted here soon. 
Meanwhile, if anyone has translated the documet already (Dr. T K Nathan for Tamil?), please post the translated versions in this thread. Thanks.

If anyone has information or experiences to share how Coronavirus is playing out in your school settings (good or bad examples), please let us know in this thread.

Here in Australia, the schools have used online learning for the last few weeks but are slowly re-opening schools for some classes and trying to implement some social distancing measures at school, as well as improved handwashing facilities. The young children (Pre-school and Year 1) as well as the oldest children (Year 11 and 12) are returning first in our state of Queensland (next week).

Regards,

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

Hi Pamela,

Many thanks for your comment and sorry for the late reply. Bella sent you a message, but somehow something went wrong. This week we have updated the Knowledge Map for a 3rd time and it now indicates exactly which material is available in which language. I just checked and there are definitely also Spanish resources you can use for the Latin American context.
The updated version is available under the old link and also includes new materials that we earmarked accordingly:  www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/resource...library/details/3831

Kind regards
Linda

Re: Knowledge Map: WASH in Schools and Coronavirus

We have some material for parents that schools can distribute during school closures 
docs.google.com/presentation/d/15RArA6if...R8U/edit?usp=sharing
An illustrated story "Cory COVID" is at  www.dropbox.com/s/d086hdpe81g0jw4/Cory%2...0May%2028b.pptx?dl=0

Versions in Hindi and Spanish are coming soon.  I'd love feedback from anyone and anyone is welcome to use or adapt them.  

These materials come out of Hygiene Heroes, which has been working on health education in schools for several years.  http://hygieneheroes.berkeley.edu/curriculum.html
