Recommendations for Triggering Local Leaders

Community members

Reaching each and every village in Malawi with a CLTS triggering, and sufficient follow-up support cis could take many years, and a lot of resources. So, the ODF Malawi by 2015 National Strategy has suggested some additional ways to promote the concept of “ODF”. What if religious leaders (pastors, church elders, priests, imams, etc.) traditional leaders (village heads, group village heads, traditional authori-ties and chiefs) or other local leaders (VDCs, ADCs, SMCs, etc.) could be effectively encouraged to promote ODF?
