Urban CLTS in Motherland, Nairobi

rubbish and sewerage in Motherland, Nairobi

Motherland is a village located in Kamukunji division in Nairobi. Around 2000 families live in Motherland. Open defecation is a huge problem since there are only three public toilets available to residents. There are no private sanitation blocks. Motherland also has the only ‘illegal’ dump site that serves the whole of the Eastleigh area of Nairobi. The area lacks a sewer system as well as other social amenities like public schools, public health clinics or road infrastructure.

Triggering for handwashing in CLTS

Woman washing her hands, Malawi
The ODF Malawi 2015 Strategy and National Hand Washing Campaign have contributed to an increased focus on handwashing with soap (HWWS) in Malawi. CLTS is one of the key interventions used for sanitation and hygiene promotion in Malawi, with handwashing (HW) as a key component of ODF status achievement. However, the tools used to trigger for handwashing appear minimal and could therefore be improved upon. This report reviews current methods for triggering for handwashing and CLTS and assess their effectiveness in creating handwashing facilities and increasing the presence of soap. It also suggests areas for improvement and describes new triggering tools that have been piloted and evaluated.

CLTS training workshop for facilitation teams in East Timor

This case study describes and analyses a six-day Training of Facilitators (TOF) workshop on the CLTS methodology in East Timor, which was held in November 2011. It describes how CLTS has been adapted to the Timorese context (where there is limited experience with community facilitation and mobilization and there has been a long period of subsidy for infrastructure generally) how the workshop was planned and implemented, how the
practice sessions were organized in the villages, and what was learned from the workshop about how to do CLTS training and how to facilitate the triggering process.

Dignified shitting: 12 villages in Tharaka County say goodbye to open defecation

Community

 On the 29th August 2012 I attended an amazing ceremony where over 600 community members –girls and boys, men and women- in Kaguma sub-location in Tharaka South District gathered under trees, drummed, sang and danced to mark the end of open defecation in their community. It is the biggest ODF celebration I have ever attend -12 villages celebrating ODF at once is a big achievement. All together 398 households with a population of about 2500 are now living in an ODF environment.
