I'm looking for sample engineering drawings of menstrual hygiene facilities for schools.
I couldn't find any references to this in the FAQs or the knowledgepoint Q

WaterAid Pakistan produced this guidance with design.
The attached factsheet from WEDC has got the basics, including toilet designs WEDC - Menstrual hygiene management in schools 2012.pdf
For an incinerator, Practical Action is looking into a low-cost one: http://practicalaction.org/low-cost-i...
I don't have to hand other examples of small incinerators, although as far as I know, designs can be used from health centres (small incinerators to dispose of medical waste - see the factsheet at http://practicalaction.org/low-cost-m... with several examples)
Plan International (Ghana) had a pilot project in 2006 to develop a a model ‘girl-friendly latrine’: http://www.ircwash.org/resources/girl... ; In the same period IRC and UNICEF published a booklet called "Child-friendly hygiene and sanitation facilities in schools": http://www.ircwash.org/resources/chil... . Both documents include design guidelines rather than detailed technical designs.
All the best
Don't use a standard design. Talk to students and co design this with them. This was done successfully in Sierra Leone by ACF. They are the users so they can contribute to the design. Doing "mock ups" with lines on the ground so they can visualise the space can help the debate. Some issues that have arisen that should be considered are lighting (how about windows in the roof rather than walls for light and privacy?), mirrors, piped water supply or at least a private water supply, covered drains, privacy within a shared toilet as well as from outside. Are reusable or disposal pads being used? is bathing and or laundry planned?
And - please write up your successes and failures - not enough case studies to leaden from - yet!
