Bring your skills in hygiene education and WASH to the BEQUAL program in Lao where you can help reduce the incidence of illness in students resulting from poor water quality and sanitation.
As Project Support Officer WASH & Education, you will work with the (BEQUAL) The Basic Education Quality and Access in Lao PDR (BEQUAL) Infrastructure Team (BIT), and Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) Central Office, Provincial and District staff to build capacity in hygiene education and practice.
You will work closely with the BIT team to develop and implement hygiene education materials which could be included in the Primary School curriculum as well as related training materials to deliver hygiene education at the school level. As a volunteer you will work closely with Lao staff in Vientiane on a day to day basis and will have many opportunities to visit schools to undertake training in some of the 29 Districts in the five targeted Provinces of Phongsaly, Luangnamtha, Khammouane, Savannakhet and Saravan.
Your time at BEQUAL as WASH Educator will lead to improved staff skills, contributing to improved practices in hygiene education at the school level. This will result in improved health outcomes for the targeted school communities resulting in the improved attendance of students, particularly girls, and thereby supporting the educational objectives of the BEQUAL program.
