Fatoumatta Singhateh works with the Gambian Ministry of Health as a WASH Program Officer. As a national trainer and facilitator for both the Community-Led Total Sanitation and Social and Behavioral Change Communication, she trained a number of health workers and village support groups on sanitation improvements, behavioral change, and communication skills. Fatoumatta coordinates and implements several radio and television panel discussion programs on maternal and child health nutrition as well as sanitation. Her contribution led to the decline of open defecation practices from four percent to less than one percent. She is passionate about helping girls in low income families and thus engaged two hundred children at school to learn about menstrual hygiene management, career counseling, and motivational training. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Development Studies, a higher national diploma in public and environmental health, and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in International Public Health at Euclid University.
