  4. 4. WRONG ASSUMPTIONS <ul><li>Good triggering will result in rapid adoption of the concept by the community </li></ul><ul><li>CLTS only needs to be ignited and it will spread like bush fire in the community </li></ul><ul><li>To achieve quick results CLTS should be rolled out in as many villages as possible </li></ul><ul><li>The sanitation committee formed after CLTS trigger can on their own oversee the attainment of ODF status in their village </li></ul><ul><li>GOK personnel will enthusiastically support CLTS efforts </li></ul>
  5. 6. CHALLENGES <ul><li>Poor soil condition, either collapsing or hard rock. </li></ul><ul><li>Presence of widows and old men and women who cannot put up latrines. </li></ul><ul><li>Issues of culture; women are not allowed to dig holes for latrines and use of same latrine by in-laws is prohibited </li></ul><ul><li>Large tracts of uncultivated land conducive for open defacation. </li></ul>

It requires patience, commitment and determination. </li></ul>
