Another Sago Studio, run by Sago Network, has been completed in Papua New Guinea.
This Studio worked in two communities and provided better water pumps and a trial of two types of composting toilets.
Checking the parts and assembling the new water hand pump
Local involvement in the construction of the toilet buildings
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.
