Simple, Market-based, Affordable, Repairable, Technologies
A practical approach to reach SDG 1, 2, 3, 6 and 8

SMART stands for Simple, Market-based, Affordable and Repairable Technologies. This practical symposium will train participants in key aspects of the SMART approach and will provide a boost to your WASH activities. It will provide information and discuss aspects like:
» How to training local entrepreneurial champions
» How to create profit-based and sustainable supply chains
» How to improve functionality of systems
» How to enable and accelerate supported Self-supply systems
We will share 25 years of lessons learnt in rural development during which time over 10 million people have benefited from SMARTechs. After the symposium you will have knowledge of and access to tools and a network necessary to establish a SMART Centre in your country.
Yesterday the CCAP SMART Centre was promoted at the 'Winterfair' in Genemuiden, the Netherlands, as part of the 2e3e Wereldproject fundraising.

See the news article on: http://www.genemuidenactueel.nl/2017/11/29/wintermarkt-trekt-veel-volk/ (in Dutch)

At the CCAP SMART Centre we are expanding the use of low-cost WASH technologies in Malawi. We provide training for local entrepreneurs in both production and business skills regarding SMARTechs: Simple, Market based, Affordable, Repairable Technologies.

The initiative of a SMART Centre came from CCAP (Mr Jim mc Gill) and the Dutch organisation (CI) Connect International (Mr Henk Holtslag). The SMART Centre Mzuzu in Malawi is based on a similar Centre which is run by the NGO Southern Highlands Participatory Organization (SHiPO) in Tanzania and is a training centre for low-cost water and sanitation solutions, supporting local private sector in water and sanitation businesses. The CCAP and CI requested funds from different organisations.

Brochure on SMART Hygiene Solutions during COVID-19 | CCAP SMART Centre Malawi

As many people know by now, water and hygiene are two essential factors in preventing the spread of COVID-19. In most African countries the virus has just started spreading, which is why it’s important to act now.

Even though Malawi is reportedly not yet affected by the coronavirus, a lot of misinformation is shared. As WASH Advisors, today we decided to inform our staff and neighbors, with whom we share a plot, about how to avoid spreading of the virus as much as possible. The World Health Organization has some great infographics to advise the public on their website, so we printed those and put them up for everyone to see.

We’d love to hear from fellow Malawians and organizations based here: Are you taking any preventive measures yet? Let’s share and learn from each other.

By linking safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene to faith, we try to get rural communities involved and enthusiastic about this important subject.

We started the dialogue with church leaders in rural Malawi about the benefits of WASH in 2017, and are excited to continue spreading awareness during our Faith & Water trainings this month.

As many of you know, there are some big changes happening at the SMART Centre. Yesterday, we invited our entrepreneurs for our monthly meet-up and said our goodbyes to Reinier and Rianne, who will be leaving us this week to go back to the Netherlands. We're sad to see them go, but will make sure to continue their good work for the Centre!

Did you know one of our most successful sanitation products is the so-called flapper? This bright blue plastic element can be fitted into a pedestal toilet or into a cement toilet slab. Closing off the latrine, it prevents smells and any unwanted guests, like flies. 🙂
We have completed another successful training providing 12 entrepreneurs with the skills to build a pedestal and a slab toilet, both with a flapper. Here’s a little impression of the training!

Reinier&rianneinmalawi

In juni hebben we een drie weken durende training gehouden in het onderhouden en installeren van touwpompen, waarbij Reinier verantwoordelijk was voor de theoretische inhoud en de praktijkplekken. Via een partnerorganisatie, PumpAid, hebben we zo’n 15 lokale monteurs getraind uit het centrale deel van Malawi. Door een combinatie van theorie en praktijk kennen deze mensen nu de onderdelen van de pomp, weten ze de sterke en zwakke kanten van de pomp en kunnen ze deze nu ook goed repareren en installeren.

Vaak wordt er door de bevolking vanuit gegaan dat drinkwatergerelateerde zaken gratis gedaan worden, omdat ze vinden dat water gratis moet zijn en omdat de monteur ook al geprofiteerd heeft door het volgen van de training. We hebben er daarom ook bij stilgestaan hoe ze hier toch een business van kunnen maken.

Daarnaast hebben we er met elkaar over nagedacht waar ze op moeten letten bij het trainen van de bevolking in het gebruik en onderhoud van de pomp. Samen met een stagiaire heeft Rianne deze sessie voor haar rekening gehouden. Via sketches, het stellen van vragen en gezamenlijk brainstormen hebben we een mooie lijst van aandachtspunten opgesteld.

Een voorbeeld waarbij het ging over het samenstellen van een commissie voor het onderhoud van de pomp:
--> Wat voor samenstelling zou je graag in zo’n commissie zien?
--> Een mix van mannen en vrouwen
--> Andere aandachtspunten?
--> Wat als je een commissie hebt van allemaal oudere dorpsbewoners?
- Nee, dat is niet goed. Zij zijn langzaam in het nadenken en begrijpen van nieuwe dingen.
- We hebben jonge mensen nodig in de commissie
--> Stel je hebt een commissie bestaande uit allemaal jongen mensen. Een deel van hen trouwt en verhuist daarom naar een ander dorp. Een ander deel probeert geluk en inkomen te vinden in de stad. Wat houd je dan over, wat gebeurt er dan?

Op deze manier zijn we erop uitgekomen dat het goed is om een commissie samen te stellen die gemixt is qua geslacht en qua leeftijd, met de extra opmerking erbij vanuit de deelnemers dat je er ook op moet letten dat de commissieleden ook de intellectuele capaciteiten moeten hebben om na te denken over onderhoud en de financiële zaken die erbij komen kijken.

Al met al waren het goede weken met enthousiaste deelnemers!

We have had a very good training by the most enthusiastic teacher ever. Lexa is her name.
A particularly driven woman who puts her students to work with humor. She loves her country and wants to develop her compatriots.
It was quite a tough course for the entrepreneurs, but they all did a good job and we will definitely invite Lexa one more time.
