Peer support

Periodic work-related seminars should be convened during the water and sanitation program's working life. Such conferences assist all involved (Peace Corps and host country) by sharing common problems and solutions associated with technical, cultural, community participation, and health education/ training issues. Volunteer morale can be effectively boosted with an occasional conference. In remote regions, Volunteer postings should be within a reasonable distance of each other so that occasional meetings for peer support can occur.

Additional detailed information on project planning can be found in Appendix F
