What do you think of the suggested selection of Wikipedia pages?

Are there other pages we should include, related to this area of work?]]>

I would like to let you know about SuSanA's Wikipedia World Water Day Editathon (19th/20th March), an event being organised under the Gates Foundation Phase 3 Grant.

Rationale for this event: Wikipedia has great value to those working on the periphery of the sector. For example local government actors working on policy and legislation or media need information on WASH issues. International UN days such as World Water Day are other occasions when the number of people looking to Wikipedia to gain an understanding of WASH related issues will peak

Objectives:
• Edit WASH-related pages on Wikipedia (with 500 million users a month it is the world’s 5th most visited website!). This includes pages that are not specifically about WASH topics but that should provide links to WASH topics, such as the page about malnutrition.
• Improve quality and quantity of information available on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
• Enable SuSanA members and WGs to share their knowledge, which can leverage progress towards the achievement of SDG6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.


The Edit-a-thon runs from 19th-20th March, and you can get involved from wherever you are in the world, for whatever amount of time (from 10 mins to 48 hrs ) you can spare!

As 1 of the partners in this grant, WaterAid will be supporting WG7, amongst other WGs, to get involved in the Edit-a-thon.

I will start by proposing some Wikipedia pages which WG7 members may be interested in editing.

Here are some suggestions:

WASH (if sufficient quantity of info on WASH in schools is added here, we can create a separate page for WASH in Schools).
Menstrual Hygiene Day
Community-led total sanitation
Participatory Rural Appraisal
Gender equality
Open defecation
Behavior change (public health)
World Toilet Day
Sustainable development goals (with a focus on adding content under SDG6)
Sanitation Marketing (suggested new page – WG2 to take the lead on it, but WG7 may also have inputs).



What does the group think about focusing on these pages? Have you got ideas of more useful/relevant ones? Please enter your views here in this thread.


Soon, I'll be sharing some short videos which explain how you can make basic edits on Wikipedia pages including adding references, adding content or adding an image.

Looking forward to hearing the thoughts/questions and comments from WG7!]]>

Sharing belated WG7 report and presentation- would love to hear from members on GHD, 15 October 2016! - by: BelindaA http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/60-wg-7-community-rural-schools-gender/19349-sharing-belated-wg7-report-and-presentation-would-love-to-hear-from-members-on-ghd-15-october-2016#19349 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/60-wg-7-community-rural-schools-gender/19349-sharing-belated-wg7-report-and-presentation-would-love-to-hear-from-members-on-ghd-15-october-2016#19349
Dear WG7 members,

October 15th was Global Handwashing Day! We have discussed a lot about the importance of raising the profile of sanitation and hygiene in schools. This day provides an excellent opportunity to do just that!

I would love for members to share some of the innovative Global Handwash day activities in the efforts of creating the culture of cleanliness that we have often talked about.

I am also including rather belatedly, the draft report and presentation from the WG7 session held in Stockholm in late August!

Three things stood out for me in that meeting related to WinS:
Firstly, the issues often not talked about are corruption in general and vandalism by even parents in some cases to undermine WiNs;
Secondly a comment that, 'immediately you come into a school as an outsider, there's an expectation of getting money';
Thirdly, kids in the forefront- with excellent global examples of the need to plan and engage with children- which is discussed in theory but rarely actually done!


All the best from Hanoi,]]>
