|Abstract: ||Study tours are often convened for officials and staff, but rarely are community members the focus of such educational trips.
Water and sanitation projects in remote villages require community participation for real change and sustainability. This
paper presents village-to-village study tours as an effective way to increase the capacity of even the most disadvantaged
villages. After visiting successful villages, communities have the information they need to choose, build, maintain, and
utilize water systems and are motivated to make sanitation improvements for their health.|
