CAWST celebrates global partners gathering in Calgary
June 17th, 2015 – Calgary-based charity CAWST, Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology, hosted an event on Tuesday 16th, 2015 to celebrate the organization’s global partners from eight countries being gathered in Calgary for the first time ever.
The “Global Partners Meet and Greet” event provided an opportunity for Calgarians to learn how CAWST has partnered with organizations worldwide to improve access to safe drinking water and sanitation through education and training.
CAWST partners with local organizations to form “WET Centres” (Water Expertise and Training Centres) in each country.
The WET Centre program see CAWST train and support local organizations to do locally what CAWST does globally, which is to address the need for safe drinking water and sanitation by building local knowledge and skills. This way, local populations are able to identify, implement and sustain the water and sanitation solutions they need to maintain health.
