About WASH in Schools
This page provides background information on the WASH in Schools web site, the WASH in Schools Partnership, and how to join; and who to contact for more information.
The WASH in schools web site was started as a joint initiative of IRC and UNICEF and is now hosted by IRC. At intervals various organisations use this platform to promote their WASH in schools project documents among them CARE USA and Simavi. It serves as a discussion forum and an information exchange platform for sector professionals working in the field of WASH in Schools.
