Water Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) Promotion training/ Course.
Drinking, eating, washing, excreting – these are things we do every day of our lives. But the way we do them can have
a major impact on our health. The training in Water Sanitation & Hygiene enable participants to better understand how to better lives.
Good hygiene practices are an essential part of daily life and we all need to understand
what hygiene means, why it’s important for our health and wellbeing, and how we can change our behavior to
safeguard our health. Promoting good hygiene in your community and educating people in ways to protect themselves
and their families from ill health is one of the most important aspects of WASH Practitioners.
WASH technicians and other employees of service providers and local bureaus need to have a good understanding of
social, cultural, financial and institutional issues at the local level. They also have responsibility to ensure that the
service users are aware of their rights and responsibilities, such as how users may influence decision makers, and ensure
the service providers are accountable to their customers.
