Hygiene Village Project (HVP) has embarked on sanitation promotion campaigns targeting communities in low income areas.
And on Wednesday, in partnership with the Lilongwe Water Board (LWB), the organisation conducted a sanitation campaign in the area of Traditional Authority (T/A) Maliri in Likuni.
“The aim of the project is to promote sanitation and hygiene, which aims at increasing the number of households in the low income areas to have and use improved latrines and practice hand washing with soap during the five critical times.
“These results are expected to be achieved through sanitation and hygiene campaigns,” said Roy Khonyongwa, executive director of Hygiene Village Project on the sidelines of the promotion in Likuni.
LWB project engineer Sinos Maliyono said through the campaign, communities are encouraged to construct improved toilets.
‘Most communities have toilets that stink and without washing facility,” said Maliyono.
Malawi, through Blantyre and Lilongwe water boards is implementing a sanitation marketing and hygiene promotion project with funding from the World Bank.
