Safe Water School Manual
In the Safe Water School children are educated in the fields of water, hygiene and health. The education is combined with the development of an adequate infrastructure and daily application of the new knowledge.
The SODIS manual can be used by project managers and local technical staff. The manual contains technical information about the effect of SODIS, a detailed description of the process, the advantages and disadvantages of SODIS, and information about the implementation of projects.
The various language versions have different layouts. Their contents are identical.
The training manual is intended to support government organisations, international development organisations and NGOs that are already active in the field of community health education or domestic water treatment. It describes the most important factors for successful implementation of a SODIS project. The information it contains has been collected from various projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Among other things, the manual discusses the following points in detail:
