Thanks to decades of advocacy work, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in School (WinS) is moving up on political agendas, leading to more programmes and the involvement of a more diverse range of partners. This paper represents the first formal attempt to analyse the engagement of private sector actors in WinS multi-sector partnerships.

This paper presents an attempt towards developing a typology of WinS partnerships, which shall help practitioners step back from programme implementation to assess key characteristics of their partnerships, improve their design and enhance the sustainability of their interventions.
Although not exhaustive, this resource guide serves as a tool for implementers and advocates in the WASH and education nexus to pursue and promote integrated programming. This document contains summaries of manuals and reports, mapping resources, and a list of organisations working on WASH in Schools. This guide was compiled by WASH Advocates.
From the borehole to the pond and back again
Rehabilitation of one primary school borehole has been successful but many others still depend on unreliable water.
Burungu is a rural primary school in Karambi Sub County of Kabarole district in Uganda with a population of over 420 pupils. Water is an absolute necessity for both the teachers and children. It is recommended that each pupil accesses at least 5 litres per day. However, the nearest source – a borehole just about 400 metres away from the school – cannot be relied upon. It breaks down frequently.
