Training With One Of the Best
Clean Water for Haiti is one of the largest, continually running bio-sand filter projects working not just in Haiti, but globally. Since our start in 2001 we’ve installed over 21,000 filters. We also have a proven track record – data shows that over 95% of our filters are still in use after the first year. We can offer over 13 years of on the ground experience in Haiti – something that’s invaluable.
Going Beyond Theory
Theory is good and needed, especially when working in a technical capacity. But, theory will only go so far. Students who attend our training classes will not only learn theory about household water treatment and the bio-sand filter, they’ll learn real, practical lessons about how to run and maintain a bio-sand filter project in Haiti.
Hands on experience is one of the best training tools there is. Students will have a lot of hands on construction and installation training, as well as several project implementation exercises through the week. All of our training staff have been working with Clean Water for Haiti for about a decade. That’s a decade or more of on the ground experience being passed on to your organization.
Our staff also spend a lot of time answering questions and testing student comprehension, as well as troubleshooting issues. We attempt to address the struggles encountered with running a project in Haiti by addressing cultural issues, resource problems, and other challenges that we have encountered ourselves.
Perks to Training With Us
Organizations who train with Clean Water for Haiti are given access not only to our knowledge and expertise, but can also purchase steel filter molds at cost that are manufactured on site and extensively tested. We also sell tubes and diffuser basins, necessary filter components, to CWH trained organizations at cost as a means of encouraging your production and project success.
