Partnerships in the Philippines

Through the WASH in Schools Technical Working Group of the Department of Education, the FIT programmemaintains technical collaboration with organizations working to promote daily group hygiene activities in schools:

  • Department of Health
  • UNICEF Philippines
  • Save the Children

Beyond the Regional Fit for School Program, from 2016 to 2018 Unilever and GIZ collaborated on a public-private partnership in the Philippines through the project modality financed by the Domestos Brand and BMZ. This collaboration focused on conducting research on operation and maintenance of WinS facilities and habit formation. Based on the success of this partnership, Unilever and GIZ continue their collaboration with another project partnership that started in late 2019 to support the improvement of the SDG sanitation indicator related to the availability of usable and gender-segregated toilets in schools in the Philippines.
