HH is happy to be associated with Sago and with the assistance of the WorldSkill Foundation has added some support in the development of better hand pump technology. Data loggers combined with other ideas for assessing the use, effectiveness and local acceptance of the 2 composting toilets have also been put in place.

Data loggers will record use and be compared to interviews with local residents about how the toilets perform.

As always Sago worked closely with he community members and built local skills and maintenance capacity along with new infrastructure.
