What is Education or IEC (Information, Education, and Communication)?

Educational activities aim to increase knowledge in the target population. When planning the educational component of a project, sometimes people use the term IEC, which stands for information, education and communication, to indicate that a broader range of activity is envisioned than just traditional classroom instruction or a health worker telling a group of mothers what they should do.

In a Safe Water System project, educational activities:
