Aqua Clara International transfers appropriate, effective and affordable technological know-how to local community leaders who will then be empowered to meet the needs of their communities. One important method for accomplishing this purpose is training.
We recognize that one of the most difficult endeavors in any community development project is in effecting behavioral change and/or product adoption. Therefore, when we begin a new initiative, we work in collaboration with respected and trusted local community leaders, those who can foster promotion and early adoption. These individuals become part of a training program designed to empower their group or organization to launch and maintain their own water programs in their target locations. We believe that any sustainable solution must be locally driven and locally sustainable, therefore we focus on providing a thorough educational experience that is followed by ongoing support and guidance. Our training programs typically cover two or three days to a week, depending on the nature of the technology and the needs of participants.
