- Re: WaterAid School WASH research in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Nepal - by: muench April 27, 2017Dear Jacques, Thanks for putting together these key points. They are interesting but in order to use them for the Wikipedia article on WASH in schools, the language needs to be changed. It needs to be written for the lay person. At the moment it is still too complex, too much jargon and it is also not clear which reference goes with which statement or paragr […]
- Elimination of Manual Scavenging - by: muench April 27, 2017Dear Meenakshisundaram, I've moved your post into this existing thread which might answer some of your questions (please scrol up and note there are two pages to the discussion). Do you find any answers there? Technologies and fecal sludge management processes exist to overcome the issues with unsafe emptying of pit latrines, septic tanks and bucket toi […]
- Re: Defining the Scope of Case Study Research - What is a best practice? - by: GB April 27, 2017Abhishek, I agree....many of the times this holds true, unless there is a third party verification. As we have seen in the case of Nirmal Gram Puraskar in the past. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

While on a mission in Bangladesh I visited a tea stall where I saw a lot of men getting their daily cup of tea. Tea stalls are a common phenomenon in Bangladesh, it is a place where people gather not just for tea, but to hang out and talk freely about whatever is important to them. Male field workers in the BRAC WASH programme have started visiting these stalls to discuss sanitation and hygiene practices.
Forum theatres are one of WaterAid’s new approaches of improving hygiene in Bangladesh by focusing on men. See below photos of a pilot show in Jogdol bazaar, Magura in west Bangladesh.
Hygiene promotion for men is also being addressed in an EU-funded rehabilitation project in Nepal being carried out by NGO Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH), with support from the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. Read more in IRC’s Source Bulletin.
Local health workers in Nepal are performing in village plays to promote men’s hygiene.
It’s an innovative way of getting the hygiene message across to the target audience – men. Targeting men is not easy because, in many districts, men go to India for six months at a time for work.
