WASH in Schools Monitoring Package

Updated - Thursday 11 August 2011

This package is designed to help address the WASH in Schools monitoring deficit at the national level. It is designed as a resource for WASH and Education professionals and practitioners to strengthen national monitoring systems and to improve the quality of monitoring at the project level.

The package consists of three modules:

  • The EMIS module: a set of basic monitoring questions on WASH in Schools to be incorporated into national Education Monitoring Information Systems (EMIS), usually administered annually;
  • The survey module: a more comprehensive set of questions, observations and focus group discussion guidelines for use in national WASH in Schools surveys as well as for sub-national, project level or thematic surveys;
  • The children’s monitoring module: a teacher’s guide and tool set for the monitoring of WASH in Schools by students, including observation checklists, survey questions and special monitoring exercises.

Keeping Ugandan girls in school - fundraiser

Support the  IRC fundraiser to raise € 10,000  to ensure that 1,500 people in Uganda get sustainable access to safe water. And that the distance girls in the community have to walk to collect water will be reduced so that they can spend more time in school.

Every day, in Uganda, girls have to walk more than a kilometre carrying 20 litre containers of water on their heads. That means they miss out on school. On Sunday 12 March: IRC staff, family and friends will run The Hague's City Pier City to help change this situation. Sponsor our runners and support us in keeping the girls of Uganda in school.
