ProjectSHINE in Tanzania

Nyuat (Hard working initiatives)

Nyuat aims to spread SHINE far and wide in communities in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area to see that others benefit from the project. Beneficiaries include women and children, out-of-school youth and those who are disabled who may not reached by educational campaigns, pregnant women, and others in the community.

The group offers education and awareness-raising outreach efforts within the community in partnership with a local hospital. Nyuat is also pursuing soap making as a social enterprise and is targeting safari lodges in the area as well as hoping to provide low cost soap for local markets in addition to increasing international sales.

Biosand filters

23 million people in Tanzania lack safe drinking water, and 4,000 children die each year due to infection from unsafe drinking water. A biosand filter (BSF) is an adaptation of the traditional slow sand filter, which has been used for community drinking water treatment for 200 years.

What actions have been taken so far?

1) 130 filters have been installed in partnership with Aqua Clara (Kenya), WET Center (Zambia), and CAWST (Canada). 

2) Acceptability and feasibility studies have been conducted in two communities within the Ngorongoro Conversation Area.

3) 30 Filter technicians and 30 community health promoters in two communities have been trained to maintain the filters, increase education and spread awareness.

ProjectSHINE in India

From 2016-2018 Project SHINE was adapted and implemented in two schools in Sri Puram, India.
The project was adapted in order to translate SHINE to the southern Indian context and authentically incorporate the inputs of the local community into the project’s design. SHINE India included teacher trainings, school-based lessons, community mobilization events, workshops, a sanitation science fair, and several research sub-studies.
