From classrooms to change makers: Inspiring WASH clubs in Albania

Discover the inspiring work of WASH clubs at Myftar Matay and Vasil Shanto schools in Schkodra municipality, Albania. These dedicated clubs are at the forefront of water, sanitation, and waste management awareness, promoting environmental action and engagement.

Operating under the WECF’s long-term Water and Sanitation Safety Planning (WSSP) program, these clubs are part of a regional effort spanning Albania, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. This program aligns with WHO’s initiatives related to Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH).

This video is a glimpse into the impactful WSSP project activities in Albania, carried out in collaboration with the Woman in Development NGO. These efforts are made possible through the generous financial support of EXI – Environmental Protection Export Initiative program by the German Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection.

The project encompasses a range of activities, including:

  • Establishing WASH classrooms with the invaluable assistance of biology and geography teachers from both schools.
  • Long-term initiatives dedicated to World Water & Sanitation Days and World Environmental Day.
  • Integrating WSSP Compendium Chapters into the School Curriculum.
  • Building strong partnerships with representatives of the Malesia e Madhe Health Institution in Albania.
  • Collaborative endeavors with national stakeholders to raise awareness about regional and national water quality concerns.

This ongoing program continues to grow and evolve, addressing various topics and activities across the Balkan Peninsula. Join us in celebrating the dedication of these WASH clubs and their vital contributions to a cleaner, safer environment.
