Presenter: Katherine Pizzacalla, Fit for School ARMM Program, GIZ
Time: 15 November 2017 - 09.00 EST/ 14.00 GMT/ 17.00 EAT/ 22:00 PHT
This webinar will discuss the strategy used by the Filipino Department of Education and GIZ to provide support to improve sanitation infrastructure in selected schools in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Philippines. The concept was developed as an alternative strategy to improve toilets in schools in conflict-affected areas where external construction teams could not access. The strategy focuses on school based management and the role of the school community, led by the school head, to ensure the construction is completed.
