This report presents a study on water, sanitation and education in Nepal conducted by CERID for UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia. In 2008 UNICEF ROSA commissioned a desk study into water and sanitation related exclusion at school in South Asia (Ollieuz, 2008). The desk study revealed that, though some instances of anecdotal reports about children being discriminated against were found in schools on the issues of water and sanitation, little evidence was available to have sufficient claims on the matter so far – hence the need for the present study. The current study had the goal of exploring the real situation of water and sanitation in the schools of the country so that awareness could be raised at the policy level as well as at the level of implementation in schools. The study has also attempted to explore the ways in which problems of water and sanitation have played a role in children’s exclusion from and discrimination in education. Some actions have been suggested for the policy and practice levels in order to change the existing situation. In consultation with UNICEF and Department of Education (DoE), 3 sample districts (Chitwan, Tanuhu and Kapilvastu) were selected for the study. Within a sample district, 4 schools and 4 community sites were sampled based on the suggestions of the District Education Officer, Section Officer, School Supervisor and engineers of the respective sample District Education Offices (DEOs). The study is based on the information gathered from altogether 279 respondents from various schools and communities sampled. From the study, it is evident that there is a scarcity of drinking water in many schools, so that the children have to sit in line for hours to drink water;and they even have to go away from the school premises for defecation or urination. In these instances, the chance of missing classes is very high – which will be a great educational loss. In the same way, the water and sanitation situation at home has also been found not satisfactory in many of the communities visited during the fieldwork.
