    WASH Workshop

    WASH Poster

    WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. Due to their interdependent nature, these three core issues are often grouped together to represent a growing sector. While each a separate field of work, each is dependent on the presence of the other. For example, without toilets, water sources become contaminated; without clean water, basic hygiene practices are not possible.

    The WASH sector is core to some of the work which EWBNZ does, and during this workshop our facilitator, John Edwards, will take you through what projects in this area look like.

    This workshop is free for EWBNZ members and Massey University staff/students. Otherwise, the fee for the workshop is $50.
