From April to June 2012, in Takeo, Svay Rieng and Kampong Cham province, a three-day Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) training of trainers (ToT) was conducted by the National Center for Health Promotion (NCHP).

“I am very happy to have attended this 3-day Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) ToT which is very helpful for me as well as Provincial Departments of Rural Development (PDRD) staff to effectively promote sanitation and hygiene in rural communities and encourage them to change their behavior,” said Mrs. So Channy, Chief of Community Development Office for Takeo PDRD.

The ToT on Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), School Community Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (SC-WASH) and Sanitation Marketing (SM) to stakeholders, was conducted by the National Center for Health Promotion (NCHP) with the participation of, District of Rural Development (DoRD) staff, sub-Grantee staff and international and local NGO staff. Learner-centred approaches, adult learning concepts and field practices were applied. Each topic was explained with real examples and stories that linked to the concept made it easy for participants to understand.

“At the end of this course, I got a good understanding on practical CLTS implementation through fieldwork and trainer methodology. I am now capable of transferring my knowledge to Village Development Committee (VDC) in order for them to promote communities to stop openly defecation and achieve their open defecation free (ODF) status village in the near future. If there is any organization to support on this, it is better for me to cooperate with. But if not, I will try my best to use government budget for community development activities,” added Mrs. Channy.

The purpose of the three-day ToT was to build up capacity of the stakeholders in order to value their work and skills on hygiene and sanitation as a key for sustainable development.
