Water and Hygiene (WASH) Education

Education is essential. People who receive a Maji Salama water filter learn about the hazards of using unsafe water, ways to treat water, and good hygiene practices.



Often, and especially in more rural conditions, people do not understand that the water is making them sick.  Furthermore, they have never been trained on proper hand-washing techniques or protecting their water supply.
Safe Water Now has worked with our affiliates to create an appropriate educational experience dealing with these topics for the local population.  They convey the important messages about water and hand-washing to children and/or an often illiterate or semi-literate audience.  These materials, available in 3 languages and carefully tailored to the audience, are an important facet of our work.
