U-Turn Training School

A U-Turn training school was developed for male and female students aged 12 to 16 years who had been assessed by their school as requiring special needs and additional support. A range of craft, trade and life skills were selected for the students that were supported and demonstrated by facilitators, mentors and volunteers. The programme was underpinned each week by a simple self-examination activity and a discussion session which focused on five basic principles of Watch your Words, Actions, Thoughts, Character, and your Heart (W.A.T.C.H.).

The UN-Habitat Human Values-based Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Education Programme (HVWSHE) aimed at changing people’s attitudes and behaviours towards water, sanitation and hygiene. This was to be achieved through educational means in schools and communities using Education in Human Values (EHV). The programme made a substantial impact in all the countries where it had operated, in terms of the number of teachers trained, schools and pupils reached; and communities affected positively; but also more widely at government level.
