School Sanitation and Hygiene Education (SSHE), is globally recognised as a key intervention to promote children’s right to health and clean environment and to influence a generational change in health promotion behaviour and attitudes. It is now known that not only the quality of teaching but also the environment, especially the availability of safe drinking water and sanitation together with good hygiene practices, influence learning.
This resource book is meant for managers and trainers involved in SSHE programmes operating at different levels, such as state, district or block level. Although it was developed in the context of the School Water and Sanitation Towards Health and Hygiene (SWASTHH) programme in India, this book provides many useful guidelines and activities that apply to similar programmes elsewhere.
This handbook is meant specifically for teachers working in pre-school and primary school. It will help them in the classroom to teach children about hygiene and sanitation by using one or more of the teaching approaches mentioned below. Parts of the Handbook can also be used by those indirectly involved in training and orienting education.
