Everyone at ATprojects welcome you to a new and exciting year and we hope you will find our 2017 blogs informative and they will help you understand what we do. So lets start ……

The Education Department, in collaboration with Unicef and other NGO sector organizations [including ATprojects], conducted a workshop late in 2016 to develop standard guidelines for water, sanitation and hygiene in schools in PNG. The guidelines were in line with the National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Policy 2015-2030. As we all know hygienic and healthy school learning environment is a critical element to prevent disease and facilitate children to access quality education with comfort, pride, dignity and convenience. To promote hygienic and healthy learning environment, it is important to install child friendly gender sensitive toilet facilities, arrange hand-washing facilities with soap or ash close to the toilets and ensure they are used and maintained; provide safe water for drinking in school; and put in place hygiene promotion program to sustain behaviour change. Anyone wishing to receive a draft copy of these guidelines can contact steve@atprojects-png.org.
