Community-led total sanitation capacity building

From Monday, April 17, 2023, to Friday, April 21, 2023, a national trainers capacity building has been held on the total sanitation community-led approach. That training has been organized by the Department of Health Promotion, Demand for Care, Community and Environmental Health of the Ministry of Public Health, and the Fight against AIDS in partnership with UNICEF. There were 22 participants among whom the executive director, 8 SaCoDe staff, 4 Ministry of Public Health and the Fight against AIDS, 2 AIDE staff, 2 AHMAR staff, and 2 SOJPAE staff.

That training had the aim of equipping participants with the necessary knowledge to implement that said approach to contribute to Burundian community sanitation. After that training, all Village Savings and Loan Association members have a session of sensibilization on hygiene and sanitation. During that session, themes we have been talking about were hygiene and defective sanitation-linked diseases and their preventive methods. Our community-based mentors have made a follow-up visit to all VLSA members that they trained to check on the implementation of the acquired knowledge in their respective households.

All those actions have been taken for the sake of the ISUKU project that aims at promoting hygiene, water, and sanitation in schools and communities through water infrastructure construction and rehabilitation, hygiene, and sanitation.

Help Us Empower Women, and Youth on igniting a change in sanitation behaviour rather than constructing toilets.
  • Construction of water and hygiene infrastructures in schools: SaCoDé facilitates access to drinking water for schools with poor hygiene conditions. The organization also constructs pit latrines in schools as part of its activities.

  • Construction of water and sanitation infrastructures in communities: Sanitation infrastructure is often needed by communities. Through SaCoDé, communities have access to safe drinking water and pit latrines, especially in camps for IDPs.

  • Community education for the adoption of good hygiene practices and maintenance of the facilities: It is essential to establish and build the capacities of hygiene committees and water committees for hygiene education to make the existing infrastructures truly effective. Water and hygiene committees ensure that infrastructure is properly managed and maintained, as well as the protection of assets and the sensitization of the population to adopt good hygiene practices.
