The facilitators were taken on a field trip to a village near Namitete. It was successful to inspire and train them to follow the examples of these villagers in constructing their own village fertilizer factories! Since then, several latrines are under construction. The ‘humanure’ is safe to use after six months and can produce bumper yields in conjunction with conservation farming technology. It improves soil quality and fertility without expensive farm inputs and can contribute significantly to food-security for small scale farm households.
