Project site introduction - Haut Gerard -

This time, we would like to introduce our project site, Haut Gerard. Haut Gerard is located in the rural area where it takes 30 minutes from center of Leogane city by car, and there are 150 households living. JEN works on the renovation of 6 kiosk shaped water facilities, capacity building and strengthening of Water Management Committees and hygiene promotion.

When we walk around the village, it is frequently seen cassava. Cassava is a kind of potato that is extensively cultivated in tropical regions, and its food texture is similar to potato or sweet potato. Cassava is often planted by inhabitants as it is easy to grow even in dry areas.

During our visit, we held a hygiene session to train the volunteers who are scheduled to promote hygiene knowledge. We discussed proper way to treat containers when we dip water, when we carry it. Volunteers who had the session this time, take place sessions and house to house visit to distribute correct hygiene knowledge to population.
