E-WaSH (Education – Water, Sanitation & Hygiene)

Himmotthan has integrated Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WaSH) initiatives with the Central Himalayan Education Initiative (CHEI) to improve School attendance and reducing water borne diseases among the School going Children. The programme includes establishment of proper sanitation facilities and potable water at every project school/center. This programme has spread over 86 Schools/Anganwadies covering around 5000 Children in five blocks of Uttarakhand. Himmotthan along with Implementation Support Partners (ISA) and the School Management Committees/ Mothers Committees are involved in implementation of the programme on the ground. The focus is also on Behavior Change Communication (BCC), where various tools and methods are being used to trigger the development of hygienic habits, gradually leading to a sustained change over time. Under BCC print media, electronic media, folk media and inter personal communication (IPC) are being used.

Specific common key results areas of the E-WaSH project are as follows:

  • 66 Primary Education Centers being equipped with water and sanitation facilities.
  • Around 5,000 children being benefited through BCC/IEC education.
  • 20 Pre-primary centers (AWCs) are getting basic facilities of water and sanitation.
  • Education on WaSH is being provided through 5 series of booklets on WaSH and other print materials.
  • Increased role and involvement of the community institution in improving school functioning in 86 villages through School management Committees (SMCs), Mothers Committees, PRIs, service providers, youths and stakeholders.
  • Key focus on Hygiene is being given through various IEC/BCC and training tools like SARAR kit, booklets, wall designs, stickers, posters, animated films, folk media, puppetry and drams etc.
