My ACT4 is a follow up to my LEARN4, and I think it fits nicely.
The Swiss NGO, SODIS
, has made many teaching materials
available on their website. Their methods for disinfecting water are quite simple and use materials that are readily available to folks throughout the world.
I will either be working in Tanzania or Ghana this summer. And I know I will be returning to work in Mozambique at some point. Once my research plans are confirmed by my supervisor, I plan to contact the appropriate SODIS project representative at partner organizations
in Tanzania or Ghana. If they are already working in the communities where I will be, that's great! Perhaps I can help with some sort of a****sment on project success. If they are not working where I will be going, then I will offer to take their information to the communities.
Mozambique currently has no ongoing SODIS projects. Perhaps when I return this is something I could start. At the very least, I plan to share this information with my friends in Southern Mozambique.
