UNCIEF WASH in Schools course (currently rolled out as EH590R)

This course was taught yearly to UNICEF staff, NGO staff and government and policy stakeholders.  Five rollouts, including over 300 participants from 70 counties have participated in the 4 month, biweekly course.  The course is live-taught online. This course covers the key lessons learned from peer-reviewed and grey literature and relies on participants to share their experiences on WASH in schools programs. Participants share challenges, successes, and lessons learned from a variety of experiences. Participants come to this course with a wide variety of experience and background in the sector. Some may have experience with WASH programming in general, WASH in schools programs in particular, or may be new to the field. As such, the course has been designed to cover the basics of WASH in schools programming, as well as provide enrichment for those with significant experience. We will likely find that similar challenges are echoed across field staff from different country contexts.
