WASH in Schools & Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) Training Workshop

WASH in Schools not only promotes hygiene and increases access to quality education but also supports national and local interventions to establish equitable, sustainable access to safe water and basic sanitation services in schools. Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) is crucial for promoting the health, dignity, and empowerment of women and girls. This comprehensive training aims to equip participants with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by women and girls regarding menstrual hygiene, the impacts of these challenges, and the link between MHM and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and also be able to establish a balance between WASH and MHM.
