Description

Many water users spend  many hours waiting to get some water from the tap stands. Maybe aditional taps can be stored in another places: descentralize water storage is the solution proposed from GLoWs.

GLoWS was developed in response to this situation. It is a problem-based learning approach that focuses on helping the trainees assess/frame WASH problems appropriately, and define practical actions to solve them. A key feature is that the training is provided to water professionals right at their workplace. This is important as government water bureaus in Ethiopia are under immense work pressure and cannot afford to let their staff go away for training for long periods of time. Trainers from local vocational training centres provide support and supervision from time-to-time. There is also a lot of focus on peer-to-peer learning and group work.   

GLoWS was developed by MetaMeta, with support from Partners for WaterRiPPLEIRCSNVWASTERAIN Foundation and UNICEF
