In partnership with the Joal town hall, the WERWERLE project held a capacity building workshop on the organisational development of the Darou Salam sanitation committee.

As a prelude to this meeting, the WERWERLE team met with the commander of the Joal hygiene brigade and the District Chief Medical Officer to discuss the activities planned with the sanitation committee and to invite them to take part.

The workshop was held with 14 participants including youth, women and the representative of the community radio station La Côtière. The main objective was to define the roles and responsibilities of each member of the sanitation committee. In addition, a reflection on the monitoring and orientation committee was conducted, as well as a planning of activities.

At the end of the meeting, three (03) strong resolutions were adopted:
