ENPHO Training Centre


Since 1990, ENPHO has been involved in building capacity of community, groups and organizations through various capacity building trainings. Environment and Public Health Organization (ENPHO) provides a learning platform that designs and delivers professional training programmes using innovative tools for capacity development at community and organizational levels. Since its establishment, ENPHO has been focusing on transferring innovative solutions, approaches, knowledge and skills at various levels through capacity building interventions.

In 2008, ENPHO with the technical support of Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST) established Water Expertise and Training Centre (WET-Centre) to deliver trainings in more systematic manner. Later in 2015, a separate unit named “ENPHO Training Centre” was established under the Knowledge Management Division of ENPHO and this unit has been conducting the capacity building programs for the community people and organizations on various Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) approaches, technologies and solutions. Hence, the Training Centre conducts various capacity building trainings and events with the objective of developing effective WASH training professionals capable to deliver the WASH training effectively.
