Student Movement for Real Change<br />Health, Hygiene & Sanitation Workshops- Kenya<br />
From September to December 2008, SMRC worked with the community to conduct a series of four 10-day workshops with 160 participants from the Kayafungo. Health facilitators from the Muthaa Community Development Foundation (MCDF) led the workshops. <br />
Workshop participants are now Community Health Trainers and have the responsibility to train others in the community and in the schools on better health practices.<br />
Emily Karechio, the lead health facilitator from MCDF, lectures women on household water filtration techniques. <br />
Workshop participants observe how to build a standard latrine. <br />
Community Health Trainer Program <br />During our Community Health Trainer (CHT) program in February 2009, selected CHTs from each sub-location trained pupils in every school where we installed hand-washing stations. <br />
The CHTs explained to the students the reasons they should wash their hands, how often to do it, and the best technique to ensure effectiveness. <br />
