Keeping It Clean
This quarter, Mawa Village’s Transformational Community Development (TCD) committee and the training team conducted a four-day training, inviting trainers from GHNI and ECHO Thailand. It was well attended, and the Mawa community increased their knowledge about safe livestock operations to prevent the spread of viruses, using the deep litter method for pig and duck pens, and village-appropriate water filtration (including making biochar from local resources). As the community searches for ways to generate income, the hope is that the deep litter method will help them in their new efforts to raise ducks. The water filtration material was well received, and the community is looking to take steps towards implementation.
