Specifically, the project was established to reduce diarrheal diseases through the introduction of potable water systems and latrines as well as a health education program and training activities on the maintenance of the water systems. Intensive community participation in all aspects of construction, education and maintenance was a key project strategy. The project was initiated in November, 1991, and was completed in September, 1993.
