Floating Toilet Challenge Teams Visit Lake Chilwa

Floating Toilet Challenge

As the floating toilet challenge continues, four teams have been merged into two. The two teams together with their mentors and Staff from Phalombe District Health Office visited Lake Chilwa to gain more insight into the challenge they have to address. The teams met local fishermen and “fished” out information to feed into their designs. The information included current knowledge, attitudes and practices as regards WASH, potential number of users for the toilets, availability of local materials for construction and current bye laws regarding fishing.
