The roll of the Community WASH Promoter is essential for the successful implementation of 
any water, sanitation, or hygiene (WASH) initiative.  Through this workshop, participants will 
gain a clear understanding of the best practices for supporting community members in 
changing their behaviours of WASH practices. 

This workshop has 3 modules: Foundation, Technical, and Practical. The first and last modules 
are required for the workshop, but the Technical module is flexible and created by choosing 
any of the lessons you wish to include related to WASH.  The workshop can be anywhere 
from 3 to 5 days long.  
The workshop begins with an exploration of the importance of WASH, its benefits, and the 
challenges of achieving behaviour change.  It then covers the more technical aspects of 
WASH; with focus on household water treatment and safe storage, latrines, various hygiene 
issues, and gender.  The last module is very practical and outlines the steps and strategies for 
effectively working with households and community members.
