As the local Haiti Assistant Manager and Hygiene Education Educator for WWR, Desca’s passion for teaching Hygiene Education is apparent in his interactions with children and their families. Since becoming a member of the Sanitation Water Club in June 2013, Desca has gone on to receive his degree in Administration and Management at University Public in Mirebalais and a degree in Topographic Sciences from Faculty of Sciences in Port-au-Prince. Having previously volunteered with World Water Relief, we are proud to have him as a full time part of the team.  Focused on opportunities to put learned skills to work, but also on implementing the organization’s mission in teaching people about hygiene education and installing systems of water purification, Desca is committed to helping each child have access to safe water.
