Just recently, GIWA’s Women for WASH and World Toilet College Programmes conducted a very-successful training conducted on WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) at Mohallapuri, Uttarakhand.

Attending were 60 women future Women for WASH participants. Over 90 percent of the residents in this location are not using toilets.
The topics of this first training included the importance of clean water and of ending open defecation.

The majority of the participants were illiterate and did not have household toilets, therefore posters and placards were used to demonstrate the importance of safe sanitation practises with many examples and discussions.

In spite of their routine household works, all participants showed their interest in the training with much enthusiasm and energy and took active participation during discussions and during question and answer time.
