Capacity Building

Global Sanitation Environmental Project recognizes the need for institutionalized capacity building in all phases of the project cycle to ensure continuity and sustainability of Sanitation and Environmental projects.  We seek to actively involve community members and other stakeholders in participatory consensus building in project identification, planning, design, implementation and management.

i)    Capacity Building and Training Approach

  • Our training approach consists of four (4) inter-related activities, which include:-
  • Identification of Community Training Needs in Sanitation and Environment
  • Training Development / Planning in Sanitation and Environment
  • Training Implementation in Sanitation and Environment
  • Training Assessment and Evaluation

The Main areas on which we offer support include the following:

  • Resource mobilization to support Sanitation and Environmental projects
  • Project Planning, Implementation and Management
  • Proposal Development
  • Environmental Management and Conservation
  • Environmental Pollution compliance
  • Gender project mainstreaming and development
  • Project Governance
  • Water Hygiene and Sanitation
  • Financial Management
  • Project Operation and Maintenance
  • Project Monitoring and Evaluation
  • Project Report Writing

ii.    Capacity Building on Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST)
We recognize the need for institutionalized capacity building and training for the various project stakeholders especially those at leadership and management levels.  To this end we carry out training of trainers among communities to strengthen their management skills, ensure continuous project operation and enhance sustainability of the chosen interventions.

We train trainers and coordinators in PHAST and Child to Child methodologies who later ensure effective implementation and replication of hygiene and sanitation programmes, both at the household level and in schools. We target participants in Government Ministries, community Based Organizations (CBO’s) Women Groups and Youth Groups to become Training in PHAST in their respective communities
