Dear Kimberly,
I am just wondering if there is a recording available from this webinar or if the presentations are available? And what are the main countries that were represented in the webinar in the "Pacific region"? Just wondering where UNICEF, WaterAid and others are laying their focus in that region. You mentioned Fiji and Timor Leste in your post.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Girls and Schools WASH in the Pacific Free Webinar - Thursday 29 October, 2015; 12:00pm AEST/Brisbane time

Hello all,

Please join a free webinar on Thursday 29 October (next week) on girls and schools WASH in the Pacific.

The lack of WASH facilities in schools is a major barrier to girls’ education globally and the Pacific is no exception. Ensuring the rights of girls are met within School WASH programs is challenging. Complex socio-cultural norms, ingrained gender bias and taboos, as well as resource constraints, make it a major issue for WASH practitioners in the Pacific. It is increasingly recognised that overcoming these issues must be recognised by the whole community, men and women alike, as well as taking creative approaches to break down barriers and harmful taboos.

The webinar is hosted by by the Civil Society WASH Fund. It will include a range of perspectives and case studies on girls and schools WASH in the Pacific as well as frameworks and tools useful for practitioners.

Presenters and topics include:
  • Krissy Nicholson, WASH Facilitator of the Pacific Regional Learning Event. Girls and Schools WASH: Setting the scene
  • Brooke Yamakoshi, WASH Specialist, UNICEF Exploring barriers and taboos of girls and WASH in Schools
  • Vasiti Seruvatu Qionimacawa, WASH Project Manager for Live and Learn Environmental Education (LLEE) Fiji. Integrating the rights of girls into LLEE WASH programs
  • Chealsea Huggett, Equity, Inclusion and Rights Advisor, WaterAid Australia. WaterAid’s Menstrual Hygiene Program in Timor Leste


As part of getting the conversation started for the upcoming Pacific Regional Learning Event, this webinar will be of interest to those working in Schools WASH in the Pacific and beyond.

Please register for the webinar (29/10/2015, 12:00-1:00pm AEST/Brisbane Time) at:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
