We Create WASH Leaders

Rainforest Flow works with community members to create and train a Water and Sanitation Committee (W + S) in each village that we work in.

The W + S Committee manages water and sanitation projects in their own villages. They oversee the project from start to finish, from gathering and transporting materials to building and maintaining structures.

W + S committees are also trained to use a portable Hach microbiology lab to monitor bacteria levels in water to ensure that it’s safe to drink.

Members of the W + S Committee regularly check the infrastructure and make house visits to promote family health. Some of these self-motivated leaders have parlayed their training into paid employment in the regional workforce.
