dc.description<p>In the past, residents of Soya in North Kivu relied for water on a stream during the dry season. Few families had access to a latrine; most would defecate in the bush near their houses, and hand-washing was rare. Illnesses such as diarrhoea, stomach aches and skin problems, on the other hand, were common.</p> <p>Under the SWIFT programme, Oxfam is supporting Soya to implement the government-approved &lsquo;Healthy Villages and Schools&rsquo; approach through local partner Hydraulique sans Fronti&egrave;res (Hyfro), which has constructed four new water points in the village and has trained &lsquo;community motivators&rsquo; in hygiene awareness.</p> <p>Hyfro has helped the community set up a water users&rsquo; committee to maintain the new system, and a management committee to monitor and oversee the process of reaching &lsquo;healthy village&rsquo; status. Find out how committee members feel about their roles, and how they intend to ensure the changes in their village are sustainable.</p>en
