Ziguinchor, Senegal, April 2015
At the end of April 2015 Fountain of Life ran an 'Introduction to Water Technologies' seminar in Ziguinchor, Senegal.
The three days of training covered the subjects of water contamination, water treatment options in the home, hygiene, sanitation and appropriate technologies. The seminar was attended by ten people representing five different churches.
The seminar was very interactive with plenty of discussion time. We made use of tools such as the sanitation ladder and the transmission routes games. The three days were mainly classroom based but did include some practical work learning how to make Tippy Taps.
The goal of the seminar was not to tell people that they need to change their ways but to increase awareness through education helping them identify important behaviors and make their own plan to implement change.
