Working with People in Emergencies - Lesson Plan (E-WASH Nepal)

The focus of this lesson is to describe the current and ongoing goals of the emergency response effort, how an emergency WASH volunteer contributes to those efforts, as well as clarifies scope for the volunteer role. Participants will explore communication techniques for interacting with disaster-affected people so they are equipped with the tools they need while working in communities or in temporary relief sites.
