Arup partnered with Engineers Without Borders to design and construct a new water system to transport the precious resource over the mountains from a natural spring and distribute it throughout the community of Chiche, in Guatemala.
We recognized in that process, besides providing infrastructure solutions to this issue, we needed to engage the users of the water system to ensure their access to information about hygiene and sanitation best practices. As a result, we developed materials for a hygiene and sanitation workshop.
This document is meant to serve as a guide and resource for preparing a hygiene and sanitation workshop in a rural community. It contains key considerations on how to deliver a workshop and the steps to follow during workshop preparation.
