7.8 WASH

WASH animators are trained by local Government staff. In Malawi for example, this involves training by government officers from the Water, Health and Community Development Departments. The training lasts for five consecutive days.

Epicenters with a borehole also establish a borehole management committee, who are trained by Government staff in borehole management for five days.

The topics that participants are trained on are determined by the local Government and relate to what the pertinent local issues in WASH are in the area at that time.
