What is WASH?
the acronym for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
Committed to sharing knowledge and expertise, we deliver WASH (WAter, Sanitation and Hygiene) training workshops and consulting services throughout Central America and the Caribbean.
Our dedicated WASH Training and Consulting teams, based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, deliver educational workshops and consulting services focused on the prevention and elimination of waterborne illnesses in Central America and the Caribbean.
WASH Teams work with NGOs, government agencies, health officials, educators and other organizations, providing fundamental training about the causes of waterborne diseases and how to prevent them in simple, sustainable ways.
Participants learn the steps to implementing sustainable WASH programs, and apply the lessons in their own organizations and among their communities. Programs are taught in a manner that supports the adoption and sharing of knowledge among communities for future generations.
We offer clients technical support and field consultations, to ensure successful implementation of their water and sanitation projects.
We follow-up with monitoring services to measure results and support long-term efficacy.
This training approach allows us to reach significantly more communities, and the overall health benefits are multiplied exponentially.
“Half the world’s population lacks access to safe water or sanitation. One of the largest barriers standing in the way of fixing this crisis is the lack of human capacity (knowledge and skills) in the water and sanitation sector in developing countries.”
