Hygiene and Sanitation Training Class

You may have noticed on our website that as part of our outreach we provide detailed, hands-on hygiene and sanitation training to every family receiving a water filtration device.  All of our training material is taken from the USAID’s Hygiene Improvement Project (HIP).  The training focus’s on three major areas:

  • The Feces Contamination Cycle
  • Safe Water Storage
  • Proper Hand washing

It is impossible to overstate the importance of this training.  We believe that without a proper understanding of these topics the delivered water filtration systems will turn out to be more of a burden than a blessing.  By educating the families on why they are getting sick and on how to build barriers between themselves and the diseases that are making them ill, we believe we can have a positive health impact on their daily lives.  A healthy family is a productive family, providing a way for them to reach up out of the pit of poverty.
