In December CWS program team members joined three workshops in support of their professional development for our work in Myanmar. One workshop was led by Christian Aid colleagues and joined by staff from 10 other NGOs to help us reinforce our awareness of key aspects, including collaboration and coordination, in emergency response, which starts with shared Emergency Preparedness and Response Planning.

Other workshops, which focused on Delivering Effective WASH Training and Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage, were organized by CWS and led by experts from the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology – a long-term CWS technical partner in Asia. With colleagues from other NGOs, CWS team members learned more about best practice WASH improvement techniques and successful training facilitation – not only theory but also practice.

Going forward, because of the time just invested in continuing to expand staff capacity, the team is sure CWS partnerships with families and communities will be stronger because of staff knowledge and know-how, and also because of expanded networks with other WASH practitioners and emergency response partners in Myanmar.
