The pivotal role of the Community WASH Promoter remains crucial in ensuring the effective execution of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) endeavors. This workshop aims to equip participants with a comprehensive comprehension of optimal strategies to assist community members in adopting transformative WASH behaviors.
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.
