From 12th to 17th November 2012 SAREP (USAID’s Southern Africa Regional Environmental Program) organized a one week Training of CLTS Facilitators Workshop in Shakawe, north western Botswana.  This was the first training workshop to be held on the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach in Botswana, and the first experimental use of this approach at the community level in Botswana. The aim of the workshop was to test out the CLTS approach and to create teams of facilitators who can facilitate CLTS triggering and follow-up activities in Shakawe and neighboring villages.  Shakawe was selected to launch the CLTS program because of the strong community response to community water governance by the Shakawe community.  SAREP also has plans to initiate the CLTS program in other cluster areas of Ngamiland, including Gumare and Seronga areas.
