SafeWater for All - An Account on Refresh Training

Besides conducting broad level community workshops regarding safe drinking water procedures, ECCA prioritizes the engagement of school and students by taking nature clubs into its wings. Nature clubs include a group of young and willing youths who work for establishing an eco-friendly and healthier environment. Besides focusing on activities like establishing herbal gardens, they are also trained to maintain school decorum for improving their hygiene status, conduct varieties of other programmes such as intra-school competitions and even community outreach programs involving health issues. Along with similar WASH related responsibilities, the clubs are assigned to make effort for providing safe drinking water to the whole school. With partner organizations such as Antenna Technologies, ECCA has been providing equipments for chlorination (a water disinfectant technique) so that the nature clubs can produce WATASOL themselves and bring it into use.

Refresher Training for Students on Safe Water

As each club welcomes new members every year, ECCA has also made provisions to provide interactive refresher training frequently with an objective to give them a detailed theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the proper use of chlorinator and the benefits they can acquire from it. In such manner, the efficiency of nature club in regular production and use of chlorine is increased and this naturally brings a decrease in possible water-borne health hazards ensuring a safer living environment for students and community as well. Since the recent earthquake has further led to making the issue of drinking water more sensitive, it is even more necessary to prioritize this sector of health.

"Training is a part of building yourself stronger and more confident in what you aim to do. It doesn't matter how many times you take the same training, you have to perceive it as a new topic every time so that you can take more into you. This way you clear any doubts that might arise in the future, isn't it?" said Ms. Manisha, ECCA Staff who regularly facilitates refresher training in schools.

"The status of drinking water in my community is not that good and I have always wanted to do something about it. Now, I feel capable of producing WATASOL on my own and the convince the people in my community to use it for safer health. Thank you ECCA for always supporting young students like us ", responded one of the participants of Oracle English Medium School after a refresher training program held there in October.
