This week we held a one-day WASH seminar (water, sanitation and hygiene) at SAFINA in Geita, followed by a three-day seminar on water treatment with sodium hypochlorite. There were 40 participants registered for the WASH seminar and 34 for the seminar on water treatment. The rush was so great that we had to cancel many interested parties.
Contents were water treatment in general and practical exercises with four brought along devices. In the end the devices became the property of SAFINA. They continue to train the people. The four devices are used in four villages to disinfect water for the population. On the last evening of the seminar, the participants were able to drink their self-treated water without fear of becoming ill.
