WASH/PHAST

Water and Sanitation, Hygiene (WASH)
Pro-Africa is taking into account, that the holistic approach at grass roots level includes as well the (WASH) components and its approach through PHAST and CHAST. Beside the soft components of training and awareness, Pro Africa is also implementing the hardware in the field of:

Practical implementation:

  • Borehole drilling
  • Water reservoir(dam) construction
  • Shallow well construction and
  • Hygiene and sanitation installation

Training and improvement:

PHAST stands for Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation. It                                             
is an innovative approach designed to promote hygiene behaviors, sanitation
improvements and community management of water and sanitation
facilities using specifically developed participatory techniques.
Based upon the well-established Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transmission (Phast) approach in many countries, Pro-Africa is also working alongside an already established syllabus and standard.

CHAST(Children`s Hygiene And Sanitation Training) method is based on the PHAST (Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation) approach, which is  now used by several organizations working in the field of hygiene and sanitation. This approach was developed by implementing each step in the field on an experimental basis, adapting it accordingly and then moving ahead to the next phase. The approach was developed by the hygiene and sanitation team of Caritas/Swiss group, financed by the EC. Pro-Africa is using the same approach, based on the findings of Caritas/Swiss group and tailored for the specific Zimbabwe needs and recommendations. Syllabus and training will follow the already existing findings of Swissgroup.
