Peace Corps - Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene
Welcome to the Peace Corps Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Peace Toolkit, your one-stop source for reliable and relevant WASH information. We welcome and encourage use of the toolkit by Peace Corps Volunteers and staff globally. We have designed this toolkit so we can share Peace Corps developed resources both globally and regionally. Furthermore, we have selected, and will continue to expand our selection of resources from partner agencies that we think are appropriate.
