‘Train the Trainer’ Methodology SCHOOLS

The method starts with training the head teacher, which is passed onto the teaching staff.
Finally, by active participation; to the student body. This now becomes a classroom task and is pertetural.
Here is a precis:

The full instructions will be sent together with the Portable Taps, and the back up training manuals.
Explain how the HHFH is needed and how it works, and this is 2 staged.
First ‘why’ and
Secondly, the ‘need’ and onto the implementation.

  • Introduce the Classroom  charts and how these are relevant to the long-term success of the Program.
  • Engage the Head Teacher in a full training session.
  • Demonstrate: The assembly of the portable tap, eg., bottle insertion, water dispensing, soap storage and finally the correct method of handwashing.
  • The Head teacher is asked to introduce it to an appointed teacher to oversee the installation of the system. Now known as the “HHFH coordinator”. A school timetable is slotted in to train the Class Teachers at a time suitable to the school, however the quicker this can be completed, the better.
  • At the Classroom level, the Teaching staff to appoint a student responsible for overseeing the installation for their class and upskill them in the need, installation and the outcomes of the System.
  • After week one of the full use of the system implemented, the class rotation is introduced so that all students will be actively taking part in the HHFH outcomes.

This will reinforce the need for creating a lifetime habit of clean hands by washing with soap and water. this knowledge that they are reducing the spread of disease by having clean hands will infiltrate the community and with the Portable Tap, can happen in each Household, Aid Post and Market and beyond.
