Last week ATprojects ran a sanitation training course in a village that has become a model community for the Asaro Valley. This training was not targeting the community, but approximately 25 health and education offices who were just about to finish a classroom-based training program in Goroka. What was quite unusual about this training was that the participants are not just focusing on the theoretical benefits of good sanitation, but as part of this training they are required to actually go into a rural community and build two toilets themselves. And for many of the participants who are both male and female this is the first time they’ve actually had to construct a toilet.
