Education

Education is key on every HydrateLife project, and is core to our project’s success. Many people may not know the dangers associated with drinking dirty water, poor hygiene, and not using proper sanitation facilities. And even if they do know about the dangers, they may not know where to begin to make the necessary changes.

For example, some people may have never seen a toilet before, making the use of one a completely foreign idea. Many cases have been documented where an organization will build sanitation facilities for a community, only to have them be used for storage because the community wasn’t taught why it is important to use the facilities for it’s intended purpose.

Habits are hard to change, however, once the community understands the implications of drinking dirty water, not using proper sanitation facilities, and not practicing good hygiene these habits will be more likely to change. HydrateLife has developed a curriculum that will be used on every project to help people understand the danger they are putting themselves and others in.

The core curriculum, which will deal with the dangers of contaminated water, and poor hygiene and sanitation practices, and the importance of drinking only clean water, and using proper hygiene and sanitation, will be used on every project. Because most projects will have different solutions based on the needs of the community, HydrateLife will develop additional educational materials on a number of different topics which will be used as needed. These topics could include the importance of proper water storage, water spring protection, the importance of keeping livestock away from the water source, or rainwater harvesting, to name a few.

Our education program will be broken up into three parts; education prior to the project, continuing education during the project, and training and maintenance education after the project. Please click below for more information on our education programs.
