February 7, 2011 - In the village of Gamé in central Chad open defecation was a common practice. The same flies found on the feces were found on the food that people ate. No wonder why there were stomachs diseases causing children not to go to school and parents not being able to work efficiently.

Recently IAS conducted a one week workshop where CLTS was introduced - Community Level Total Sanitation. Community leaders from 10 villages gathered and the effect was seen right away. They went home and a big construction project of local family based latrines began.
