True Companion Foundation

Monitoring and Evaluation Supporter

A monitoring and evaluation project for Community Led Total Sanitation in Selected Rural Communities.

True Companion through it partnership with local community based organisation are sensitizing community members on the need of proper waste disposal and essence of owing a toilet facility at home. Each house therefore is support with a seed funding to construct a toilet facility through added funds from them. It becomes evident that the active monitoring and evaluation of progress of the households have been instrumental in attaining the objectives of the project. Volunteers will thus work with households in innovating and constructing toilet facility and work whiles conserving the land around them and using environmentally friendly sources of fuel to curb climate change hazards. 

This we believe would conserve the rural areas, prevent cholera and related diseases and promote the standard of living and welfare of the rural folks.
The volunteers work with families and family heads in the community as well as youth groups in developing strategies of implementing undertaking the desired objective. The surroundings are typically rural and volunteers should expect a village certain even though accommodation are standard.
