WASH: Water Sanitation & Hygiene in Schools

Clean water, better sanitation, teacher training, and hygiene education in schools can improve the health and education of children by creating a cycle of opportunity: improved education, less disease, increased school attendance, improved academic performance, and saves money for their families

Joining Rotary Clubs around the world towards developing sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene (collectively referred to as WASH), RC Delhi Garden City has undertaken several projects in the Delhi-NCR region that involve:

    • Renovation of toilets (including plumbing, fittings, flooring)
    • Installation of Handwash stations for children to wash their hands
    • Education on sanitation and hygiene issues to children
    • Daily supervised hand-washing by children before and after meals

We started with a pilot project at the MCD Girls School, Srinvaspuri in 2013-14 where, in cooperation with the Boy Scouts of America, we renovated 12 toilets in 4 floors of the school. Inspired by the success of that pilot project, we were able to:

    • 2014-15: Renovate 27 toilets and install 32 handwashing stations at 4 schools impacting 4,200 school children
    • 2015-16: Renovate 75 toilets and install 102 handwashing stations at 5 schools impacting 7,700 school children
    • 2016-17: Renovate 33 toilets and install 24 handwashing stations at 1 school impacting TBD school children

We would like to acknowledge the following individuals and organizations for their sustained commitment and financial support for RC Delhi Garden City's WASH projects as part of their CSR initiatives:
