This step-by-step manual is designed to help personnel involved in the implementation of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) activities improve their knowledge and skills to facilitate community engagement processes. The principal aim of this manual is to enable practitioners and facilitators/trainers involved in hygiene promotion to adapt innovative methods in learning, planning with groups and working with communities. The manual is not written on stone, it is a workbook designed with flexibility that could be used depending on the situation.

Several Hygiene and Sanitation promotion manuals from various organizations were harmonized to produce this manual. The inputs of these organizations are acknowledged. Also acknowledged are the contributions of participants from Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources; Federal Ministry of Environment, Housing and Urban Development; Federal Ministry of Health, Federal Ministry of Education, WaterAid, GHARF NGO, UNICEF and State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agencies that took part in several consultation meetings and field testing
of this manual.
