Highlights of our major events
Kings Hall Media currently organizes public events on sanitation and water. These are mainly sponsored events meant to enhance advocacy and visibility on sanitation and water related issues. Some are also meant to exhibit new products and innovations in the sector.
The West Africa Sanitation Festival (SaniFest)
This is Kings Hall Media’s flagship biennial international event that will be organized in Accra. The maiden edition will be held in August, 2021. The festival provides a great opportunity for advocacy and visibility for every aspect of sanitation in West Africa. Make this page your home for all the news and details about SaniFest 2021. Watch this space for the first announcement soon.
The School Sanitation Solutions Challenge
Kings Hall Media, in collaboration with World Vision Ghana, organizes the annual School Sanitation Solutions (Triple S) Challenge. It is a child-centered sanitation campaign with objective to inculcate in children, interest in good sanitation and clean environment, groom children to love a clean environment and influence their peers to do same, as well as contribute ideas for improvement in sanitation policies. The Triple S Challenge is open to every Ghanaian child from Primary 6 to JHS 2. The winner of the Triple S Challenge is designated as Child Sanitation Diplomat to play an ambassadorial role and implement a one-year sanitation project. The Triple S Challenge is currently supported by the Ghana Education Service/SHEP, the Ghana Sanitation and Water Project of the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources, and the Zoomlion Foundation.
The Cleaner Generations Festival (GCF)
This is Kings Hall Media’s response to the need to catch and groom the children while they are still young for sensitization and advocacy on sanitation and hygiene. The Cleaner Generations Festival is held annually between the Northern and Southern zones of Ghana, where children demonstrate their knowledge in sanitation through play. The maiden edition of CGF will be held in July 2020 (if the country is able to control the COVID-19 pandemic by then).
Issues abound when you want to see development in any endeavour. Some of the issues will definitely need public attention; or the attention of state authorities. To provide space for identified issues to be raised, discussed and fed into public discourse with the intention of influencing a certain public order, Kings Hall Media organizes public lectures on varying themes each year. The first in the series was held in Accra in July 2018 on Institutional Complexities in Ghana’s sanitation sector in collaboration with World Vision International and the Coalition of NGOs in Water and Sanitation. The second lecture was converted into a National Symposium in partnership with the Media Coalition Against Open Defecation (M-CODe) on issues with Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in schools (WASH in Schools) in Ghana in September, 2019.
Kings Hall Media occasionally organizes Media Tours to selected sites with an identified issue of national interest. These tours either have an advocacy or a visibility issue. Guided tours to these sites provide an opportunity for both the media to gather first-hand information through observation and interaction with people in the field. The tours also provide the project implementer or community members to send their messages to the rest of the world, including the expected change-makers.
