In October 2016, GiveLove began working in partnership with WeltHungerHilfe to introduce compost sanitation to schools, communities and prisons in the Karamoja region.
In April 2017, Samuel Autran spent three weeks training compost technicians, teachers, and students at five primary schools, and 13 households scheduled for summer 2016. The team also worked with carpenters to retrofit rundown pit latrines, and explore appropriate designs for compost bins and squat toilets.
GiveLove returned in July 2017 to help scale up the school projects using a peer-to-peer training approach with the schools' WASH clubs.
The Uganda program will be one of several area case studies to study best practices for community-based sanitation programs, and evaluate the feasibility of compost sanitation in different climate zones and cultural contexts.
