Water for Life Internships

work together in an intense team atmosphere focused on project development and appropriate water technology

Water For Life is prepared to equip you with classroom and on-site training in water, sanitation, and hygiene practices. These include water project assessment, household water treatment methods, basic hygiene education, water project development, and other appropriate water technology skills. By training and working with the Water For Life team, you will be prepared to address the water needs in your community. You will find ways to work with others on practical, sustainable, and affordable solutions that can be applied immediately to the water needs in the area in which you live or work. Click here for more information about our training seminars and our training locations for 2011.

Our Water For Life training seminars are 1-2 week workshops designed to provide a balanced approach to the necessary water and sanitation knowledge needed to understand the water crisis faced by billions of people, and the hands-on skills essential for making practical changes for a family’s or community’s water/sanitation infrastructure.

Participants work together in an intense team atmosphere focused on project development and appropriate water technology. Participants also receive instruction on water/sanitation/hygiene education and methods of teaching this knowledge in developing nations. In addition, participants learn how to develop and manage water, sanitation, and hygiene projects, as well as the technical and hands-on skills needed to complete them.
