WHAT IS WASHED?
WASH Education (or "WASH-Ed" for short) is an innovative suite of services created by Masy Consultants, aimed at transforming community WASH behaviours, one module at a time. WASHEd is developed in partnership with the Philippines Society of Sanitary Engineers, Inc. (PSSE) and has been endorsed by the Department of Education (DepEd) for integration into its WASH in Schools (WinS) program. WASHEd is designed for schools, communities and WASH advocacy organisations.
Our program aims to:
Empower participants to take individual and collective actions to address WASH-related challenges through contextualized experiential learning;
Engage vulnerable sectors and communities in implementing individual and collective measures to address community WASH issues through education;
Empower youth leaders and teachers to implement Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Education (WASHEd) in their respective schools and communities; and
Inspire participants to become advocates of WASH in their communities.
Developing a more contextual approach to experiential learning, we have developed the Engage-Share-Process-Observe-Try (E-SPOT) Model as the primary learning model for the curriculum. Through this model, participants are immersed in engaging learning activities that enable them to develop WASH knowledge and skills through real-world and hands-on experiences that are meaningful to them and their community.
OUR WASHED SERVICES
When it comes to WASH Education, Masy Consultants offer expertise in assisting a wide range of organisations. We work with elementary, junior high and high schools, universities, government agencies and their affiliates, and corporations seeking to meaningfully give back to communities through targeted and sustainable Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Our services include:
