Hand hygiene is a fundamental practice to reduce the spread of diseases. Yet, the practice is not common enough in rural Africa, due to a lack of knowledge about its benefits and reduced resources. NGOs and sanitation agencies are dealing with the spread of knowledge on hand hygiene. The Iwash initiative created several educational materials to share the hand hygiene practice and a Do it Yourself approach for creating hand washing stations. Iwash supports wash-professionals who teach hand hygiene practice in rural areas and after running several workshops with them, we noticed that the way of teaching may be improved by actively engaging learners. In the workshops, wash professionals tend to be prescriptive and not engaging with the participants, additionally, hierarchy works against open discussions between professional and participant.
Iwash wants to create a course for wash professionals aimed to promote Do it Yourself practices in water sanitation. The course will touch on different topics split into modules. The first module will be a pilot to show investors and partners the potential of educating to Do it Yourself practices in wash and sanitation. Wash-professionals will be trained to create and run a workshop where hand-washing hygiene is experienced rather than explained.
