Workshop on School-led Total Sanitation (SLTS) and children's involvement in CLTS

Between the 23rd and the 25th August 2010, twenty participants from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Nepal, the Netherlands, Uganda, the UK and Zambia gathered in Nairobi to discuss School-led Total Sanitation (SLTS) and children’s involvement in Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS). The aim of the workshop was to gather existing experience in these areas, as well as to brainstorm on key issues and ways forward. The event also gave an opportunity for practitioners from different countries and organisations interested in the role of children and schools in CLTS to network and make linkages for follow up.

Without training, by just using the CLTS Handbook as their guide, they were able to train local Shepherd’s Heart International Ministries (SHIM) staff and trigger communities in the Buvuma Islands on Lake Victoria.
