Location: Matany Town Council, Napak District

Project title: Bokora WASH CEA Project

Summary: Besides local social norms devaluing the use of latrines and hindering behavior change, many of the existing latrines are frequently destroyed by flooding, causing people to revert back to open defecation. During cycle 1, the project team already learned the importance of community engagement, especially with elders who can positively influence other members of the community. The project therefore has a strong focus on software components and advocacy while introducing the Circular Pit Granary Technology (CPGT) which uses affordable, locally available materials to construct more durable latrines.
