Lillian Volat, Sustainable Sanitation for Syrian Refugees, Kurdistan, Iraq

Lillian Volat, Sustainable Sanitation for Syrian RefugeesCombined with the totally unexpected benefit of being in the Huffington Post and reaching an audience of non-urine enthusiasts, this grant was a game changer. Prior to receiving the grant and its publicity, I was not able to successfully excite people about the project’s concept, as it tended to be too “gross” or “foreign” even if it was still a good thing. After everyone in my immediate circle read about it in the Huffington Post, then the idea became cool, exciting, normal and people wanted to talk about it! I was so inspired by the response that I decided to focus more on advocacy and media, and ask for help promoting the project.
