School Water and Sanitation

An Ecosystems Approach, Delhi

Six municipal schools in East Delhi are being developed as zero-waste schools using an ecosystem approach. Starting with improvement of the school toilets - making these functional and changing the toilet use hygiene and behaviour among children, the project has expanded to improving drinking water facilities, harvesting rainwater, recharging wastewater and excessive rainwater into the ground and greening the school compounds. Children monitor hygiene behavior of peers and take the messages home to parents creating a seamless link between school and home sanitation practices.
