After successfully getting a permanent spot in the Global Giving last December 2010 Challenge, personnel of the WAND Foundation, led by Mr. Elmer V. Sayre is conducting preliminary site and beneficiary selection during this month to make sure that our beneficiaries belong to the bottom poor. We intend to focus our support for this project to peri-urban barrios in Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte and in areas where water is scarce and open defecation, water-borne disease and malnutrition is prevalent.  This innovation will be a “first” in Dipolog City and in the Zamboanga Peninsula in general.


Aside from site reconnaissance we are also doing small group discussions to inform the local residents about dry toilets and recycling of human waste for agriculture in order to close the loop between food production and sanitation.  During the site visits, local residents and school teachers are very eager to participate in the project. 


Some school teachers said that our approach may be a solution to the problems faced by their students who are oftentimes malnourished and infested with roundworms.
