Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This is a brief account of how Terry Wolfer and Robin (Buz) Kloot of the University of South Carolina stumbled upon CLTS as a solution to problems they encountered whilst working on issues of access to safe drinking water in Uganda. 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.

A more detailed account of Buz and Terry’s journey from amazi (water) to amazzi (shit) will be published in forthcoming PLA Notes on CLTS in Africa (due out in late August 2010)
