The Fuatilia Maji project invests in building skills and knowledge:

  • community monitors, i.e. selected citizens from within the communities where mapping of access, functionality and quality of water takes place 
  • students from Mzumbe University
  • students from Institute of Development Policy (IOB), Antwerp University

 

In a one week workshop, students from Mzumbe university and community monitors are trained to master a number of skills. Students learn:

  • how to use mobile devices to collect survey data
  • how to do water quality tests
  • knowledge about (mapping) access, functionality and quality of water and link to health
  • scientific values and skills
  • how to share the information about water access, functionality and quality of water and treatment with the citizens and water users
