Development organisations working in the WASH sector tend to focus on their preferred methodologies
for Hygiene and Sanitation (H&S) promotion, while the sustainability of an intervention depends much
more on how the methodology is implemented and whether an enabling environment is in place. In 2014,
Caritas Switzerland in Kenya started a learning and critical review process on how to improve its WASH
in school interventions to finally make the step from raising students’ awareness on good H&S practices
to sustainable behaviour change. As a result of this process, a number of lessons on how to foster the
enabling environment were learned, based on which the WASH in school road map was developed. This
article presents, for each phase of the WASH in school road map, the main lessons learned and how they
have been implemented in Kenya.
