Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

Hi team,

I am sorry, but I have not yet received the consent of the current GSAP authority to share the manual.

We are back in Ethiopia to continue the project after my return to Ghana due to the pandemic. I hope this time, I can finally know whether I can share it or not. I do not believe it would be a  big deal to share, however, I want to get permission before doing so. 

Thanks

Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

Is it still the case that the manual is not allowed to be shared publicly? This is how it was before Steve Mecca died (see discussion earlier in this thread) but perhaps there has been a policy shift since then? I would support Dean's request to share it in the SuSanA network if that's possible.

If it's allowed, then who has the softcopy, or could the hard copy be scanned in? How many pages is it?

Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

 Hi Goeco,

Yes. I am among the many Makers I know who have and use the late Mecca's microflush toilet manual. There has been some improvements in it after his passing on, however.
Sorry for the late response.

Stay safe,
Isaac

Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

Hi Lakachew,

It's interesting to know you were trained by Steve Mecca. I'll get in touch with you.

Thanks,
Isaac

Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

Hi Charlotte,

The training started last year, and I joined the team this year. The team is made up of MAKERS from Ghana, Kenya and Uganda under GSAP.

Work is progressing and the kebeles (communities) are excited about the technology.

Now we are training the new makers and using the process to build demos after which they are expected to build for the communities as their business.

Thanks,
Isaac

Re: Micro flush toilet training in Ethiopia

Hi Isaac,

Welcome to the SuSanA discussion forum. I am glad you have joined the forum and are currently working directly with the construction of the Microflush toilet. A lot of interest had been generated in the past about this topic. Please let us know how far you have gone with trainings in Ethiopia and what is your desired impact in that area?
Looking forward to more information on this.

Regards
Charlotte
