Introducing the WASH Team Leaders

26th September 2015

In Tanzania, approximately 14 million people do not have access to safe water, over 30% of the population, and 27 million people do not have access to adequate sanitation. In October, six teams of volunteers from the UK and Tanzania will be working alongside communities to help increase knowledge and raise awareness about Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in rural areas.

The communities are based around the Makete District near the town of Njombe in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Teams will be working with project partner SAWA (Sanitation and Water Action) on the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach. This is a methodology for mobilising communities to completely eliminate open defecation.  In the next blog we will discuss the CLTS method in more detail so stay tuned.
