Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Education
Description: The Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Education for Children has been designed to provide children in various daycare centers in Tanay, Rizal Province the opportunity to learn basic information about sanitation and hygiene. IGEEI is working with 19 day care centers in Tanay, Rizal province and developed a WASH Education Manual that could be completed within 10 days or shorter. The daycare centers are located in rural area not easily accessible and some facilities for children are limited. IGEEI is addressing these gaps steps by step but with the help of international workcamps it contributes in changing the attitudes and mindsets of students, teachers and parents on the importance of sanitation and hygiene.
Type of Work: The volunteers will implement the WASH module already developed where suggested activities and key learnings are provided. WASH Education module utilizes participatory activities that are fun, creative and enjoyable for children age between 4-6 years old. Optimizing non-formal education strategies, the module allows integration of intercultural learning by introducing various activities and games for children to stimulate their imaginations and learn more about the international participant’s cultures and traditions. International Workcampers will implement several activities each day in a rotating basis. Each day, international and local workcampers will discuss strategies and activities each day as well as evaluating each day.
