FMC strives to improve the quality and relevance of WASH interventions by conducting rigorous research in, and with, the communities our clients seek to serve. We provide current data to support evidence-based program design, helping development agents to avoid repeating past mistakes and ultimately saving costs.
Effective and sustainable WASH interventions must reflect the needs of both the implementing organization and the community it seeks to serve. FMC ensures that meaningful and effective stakeholder consultation informs program design and implementation.
We can support you in:
Participatory program design
Gender and environmental mainstreaming
TRAINING AND CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
Sustainable WASH solutions rely on transformation. Changes in attitude, knowledge and behaviour must come along with technical solutions in order to ensure long-term success. FMC works with key WASH project stakeholders – from government to community – to build, strengthen and maintain knowledge and capabilities in water management and sanitation.
We provide specific training in:
Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS)
Child Hygiene and Sanitation Training (CHAST)
Community Health Worker Sanitation Training
Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST)
WASH Implementation Planning
MONITORING AND EVALUATION
Participatory monitoring and evaluation (PM&E) supports evidence-based program design, improved participant ownership and self-organization and increases accountability and transparency. FMC works with clients to design PM&E for existing projects or incorporate in new project design and implementation.
