Training In Bhutan

As part of the Disaster Aid Australia (DAA) Safe Water Bhutan 2020 project a DAA team carried out training in Tsirang, Bhutan.

The training topics included:

  • Who are Disaster Aid Australia.
  • Water Quality.
  • Why DAA provide SkyHydrants.
  • Planning an installation.
  • Operating a SkyHydrant.

The DAA training team consisted of Brian Ashworth Director, and Disaster Aid Response Team (DARTs) members Dianne Holland, and Peter Collins.

Assistance with translations by Department of Education Officials, and Sonam Tshering of Druk Water Solution, was an important factor in getting the messages across.

The DAA team, and our partner the Rotary Club of Thimpu, were delighted with the interest of the participants which was demonstrated by their many thoughtful questions and discussions between sessions.

The first day of training was for a total of 75 students ranging from senior engineers to school caretakers.

Following the initial day, two days of ‘hands on’ training was carried out for the installation teams so they could get a better understanding of the practical problems of installations.

Having trained effective installation teams funded by the Bhutan Government will ensure the Safe Water Bhutan 2020 project is carried out as effectively as possible.
