Extension Agent reorganization into a ‘Block’ system for CLTS Implementation and Monitoring in Salima and Zomba Districts, Malawi

Inspecting a community latrine in Malawi

CLTS in Malawi has traditionally been implemented through local Health Centre extension agents and supported by resourcing provided by donor partners. With the goal of a 100% Open Defecation Free Malawi by 2015 and the current percentage of ODF villages verified at 4.3%, there is immediate need for more efficient delivery of CLTS. The inability to monitor and verify progress towards ODF presents a critical barrier that jeopardizes the attainability of ODF targets.

A few weeks ago..

I sat beside Phalombe’s District Water Supervisor in his office today, my computer fully charged in anticipation to facilitate another computer lesson on Microsoft Excel. He had committed to working on computer lessons twice a week with me in hopes of improving his technical skills on inputting, analyzing, interpreting and making decisions with the district’s water point data.
