Training Guide for CLTS Facilitators (Uganda)

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This manual intends to guide community facilitators in promoting the CLTS approach for improved sanitation and ensuing benefits. The handbook outlines the background to CLTS as well as its potential in bringing about positive behaviour and enumerates a step by step guide to promoting CLTS. It is hoped that this handbook will inspire trainers, practitioners, managers and policy-makers to ensure high standards of preparation, facilitation and follow up support; and that it will discourage target oriented approaches which degenerate into counting latrines and meeting targets for their construction, instead of assessing with rigorous standards the numbers of communities that truly achieve ODF status.

The manual was adapted for the Ministry of Health, with support from Water and Sanitation Program (WSP), from a training curriculum developed by Kamal Kar and the WSP Training of Trainers’ Manual on Community-led total sanitation for India.

As the file for this Guide is very large (12MB), it is not possible to share it online but may be available on request from Carol Nabalema
