Community WASH Promotion (CWP)
Time & Location
About the Event
The role of the Community WASH Promoter is essential for the successful implementation of any household water treatment, sanitation, or hygiene (WASH) project. Through this workshop, participants will gain a clear understanding of the best practices for supporting community members in changing their behaviours of WASH practices with the aim of achieving improved community livelihoods.
The workshop begins with an exploration of the importance of WASH, its benefits, the challenges of achieving behaviour change, and the role of a Community WASH Promoter. The workshop then covers the more technical aspects of WASH; with focus on household water treatment technologies, safe storage and handling of water, the importance of sanitation, hygiene issues, and the importance of inclusion of every member of the community. The last stage of this workshop is very practical and outlines the steps and effective strategies for effectively working with households and community members.
