November 2015

Two years ago, Hamidou Samakan, chief of the village of Yarou Plateau in Mali, noticed significant changes in the neighbouring village of Gouna. The village was clean and there were no faeces to be seen. People were building affordable latrines, sweeping common areas, and chlorinating their drinking water.

Back in Hamidou’s village, people were still defecating in the open. Few households had latrines, and diarrhoea and under-nutrition were common.

Il y a deux ans, Hamidou Samakan, chef du village Plateau Yarou, situé au Sud du Mali, a remarqué d’importants changements dans le village voisin de Gouna. Le village était propre, pas d’excréments visibles dans ses rues...

Les habitants y construisaient des latrines à un prix abordable, balayaient les espaces collectifs, et traitaient l’eau avec du chlore. Dans le village de Hamidou, les gens déféquaient encore en plein air. Peu de ménages disposaient de latrines, et la diarrhée et la malnutrition étaient monnaie courante.

In Yarou Plateau, a village in Mali, people used to use any open space for bathroom needs. You can imagine the consequences.

Flies could easily find fecal matter lying around, and from there land on food, spreading diseases like diarrhea and intestinal worms. Fecal matter in open areas also contaminated the groundwater, which villagers use for drinking and preparing food. In Yarou Plateau, frequent diarrhea was much too common among mothers and children.
