Walu is committed to working with communities to help address the sanitation crisis. We have a committed, highly capable team of volunteers with the energy and passion to make good on our commitments to the community. This summer we will send a volunteer to Nicaragua to begin training a community so they can fulfill their desire to have eco toilets!
Part of community based development is training community members on how to work within their own community. Walu is focused on training committee members and community volunteers. Without a strong leadership foundation, crucial community decisions cannot be reached and progress will be stunted.
Most people think the biggest task in obtaining eco toilets is building them. However, construction is one of the easier tasks. Community led projects require time and energy to be spent on every aspect of obtaining an eco toilet including: fundraising, design, assessment of water tables, and placement.
