This report highlights the findings of two school water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) studies completed in the southern India state of Kerala and in three districts in Kenya. The key findings of both studies are that: children will wash their hands more if sufficient taps are provided; more children will use toilets if the facilities are clean and well maintained; perfect facilities alone do not ensure good WASH in schools, and both software and hardware inputs are needed.
