WASH U 1 - Electronic Data System Training

May 2 2019 - May 12 2019
Lifewater Dodola Field Office Launch 
Electronic Data System Training

Lifewater International is excited to launch a new program to serve tens of thousands of vulnerable children and families in the Dodola district of Ethiopia. Implementing Lifewater's Vision of a Healthy Village (VHV), Lifewater national staff will live and walk alongside community members in overcoming all forms of water poverty. Lifewater’s VHV approach engages all local community actors to bring about lasting transformation in health, water access, and well-being of the most vulnerable. 

A team of 2-3 volunteers will travel with one Lifewater HQ staff member to Awassa, Ethiopia to train Lifewater Dodola  staff in how to collect data using our electronic data system. The volunteers should be experienced and confident in using smart phone technology, familiar with Lifewater's Vision of a Healthy Village, and able to humbly and clearly share information in a cross-cultural settings. The training will be led by a Lifewater staff member, and the volunteer(s) will assist in helping the team learn how to operate their new phones and collect data through the Akvo Flow application.

In addition to this, volunteers will be helping to encourage Ethiopian staff as they prepare to go to the field as Christian witnesses. Included in this training is leading daily devotions and working with staff to practice what they are learning. Your role is very important to helping launch this program successfully. 

The trip dates of May 2 - 12 include all travel dates. The training days will be May 6 - 10.

NOTE: The estimated trip cost DOES NOT include international airfare which is estimated at $1500- $2,000. Individuals will purchase airfare on their own.  All on the ground costs such as lodging, food, and transportation are included in the estimated trip cost of $1,000.
