Water Sanitation and Hygiene in Primary Schools in Temeke- Tanzania
This book will be useful to any one who will be interested in improving sanitation and hygiene to pupils especially in developing countries where by most of schools lacks sanitation facilities.
The driving force behind the sWASH initiative is the recognition that half of the world's schools lack safe water and even more cannot provide a sanitary latrine.
These deficiencies limit overall student attendance by fostering unhealthy environments and high levels of infectious diseases.
Because of a lack of privacy and gender-separate latrines, adolescent girls are especially reluctant to stay in school.
As an effort to respond to sanitation and hygiene challenges facing children in schools, Temeke municipal council in collaboration with such NGOs as HERO, EEPCO, Water Aid Tanzania and international organizations such as UNICEF conducted campaigns in primary schools to promote sanitation and hygiene awareness among pupils, teachers and parents as well as increasing the proportion of pupils using hygiene and sanitation facilities especially disabled.
