Paul Duncan, Improving Access to Clean and Portable Water and Sanitation

A group of community members sit in a circle while discussing a topic.

Primary schools in Salima, Malawi, report annually that 60% of students do not regularly attend class due to poor water and sanitation practices and that 70% of hospital admissions were water and sanitation related. Paul Duncan is working towards bringing clean and protected water to the 3,650 community members with his Improving Access to Clean and Portable Water and Sanitation project. With help from the community, four wells and five eco-san toilets will be constructed along with two eco-san workshop trainings.
