The education program prior to the start of the project will aim to teach the community the basic concepts surrounding clean water, proper sanitation, and good hygiene. This will include the hazards associated with dirty water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene, where they come from, and how to avoid them.
We will also discuss the problems specific to that community, where those problems are coming from, and how the different options being proposed will work to combat whatever issues they may be having.
The aim of all of this is to give the community a level of understanding so that they can make an educated decision about what solution will be most appropriate for their problem.
Once a decision has been made the aim of the education will change course, and we will start discussing the different parts of the project, how they are all going to come together, and who will be responsible for what. Once that is done (and we have raised enough money) the project can get started!
And the education can continue. Click here to read about how our education program continues once the project is underway.
