1. Pit Latrine Challenge in Zambia
The challenge idea spreads around and has good impact. In Zambia 28 participants participated in this first challenge. Borda took the idea from our IFAT WaterSkills activities. It is great to see, that the idea spreads around and is adapted to new areas in the water sector.
In South Africa a further challenge is planned.
