Tearfund started to work in Aweil Centre County, one of the five counties in Northern Bahr State in April 2011 implementing an integrated programme of water, hygiene and sanitation (WASH) and food security projects. The projects are aimed at supporting   the resettling   of returnees and the internally displaced people in the state.  The second phase of the project started in April 2012 and will come to a close by the end of March 2013; the main approach for sanitation improvement especially at household level has been community-led total sanitation (CLTS).

The project started off with a two weeks practical training to the six newly recruited CLTS-facilitators.  This training was also facilitated by the deputy director of WASH at the Ministry of water and rural development, who is also in charge of hygiene and sanitation.  Two community hygiene and sanitation promoters for each village have   been part of the team to support the continuation of the sanitation campaign.
