Re: Save the Date and Invitation: Webinar on New Models of WinS Engagement - Handwashing facility designs during the pandemic

Dear Marge,

What an exciting and insightful webinar it was. The presenters and innovations shared elaborated nicely on how different strategies and acceptable technologies can be employed to ensure that Hand Washing becomes a conscious practice among school-going children and communities.  

My feeling during the webinar on the subject was that interventions that are looking into Hand Washing should also focus on locally driven innovations and technologies. What I find was very evident during the height of the pandemic was that communities and local SMEs naturally responded to the demand for hand washing facilities by developing innovative technologies themselves. The Zambian market for hand washing facilities for example was flooded overnight by locally made hand washing stations some even as sophisticated as using hands-free or foot-operated mechanisms. I see these sorts of community-driven responses as opportunities for funders and implementation organisations to piggyback on as they foster ownership and sustainably while providing community innovators a source of revenue.  

Could you make available here Links to where SuSanA members can sign up for the WASH in School Network and also links to presentations delivered during the webinar?

Kind Regards,
Chaiwe

Dear Chaiwe,

Thank you very much for joining the webinar and for sharing your insights! It is very interesting how the pandemic has helped bring out the ingenuity and creativity of local communities as they designed and built handwashing facilities using locally available resources, especially in areas where water supply is a concern. We'd love to hear more stories like this.

If you are interested to contribute to the WinS Network, continue exchanging and learning, and/or just be kept informed on future activities, please fill out the WinS Network Member Registration Form .

We are very glad to hear you enjoyed the session and would love to continue the exchange!

Best regards,
Marge
