Ecological sanitation developed for the reuse of human excrement was first introduced to the Niassa Province, in Northern Mozambique through a workshop held by the Department of Water and Sanitation and WaterAid in March 2000. ESTAMOS, a local Mozambican NGO, founded in 1998, and a partner of WaterAid’s decided to carry on with the promotion of ecological sanitation initiated by the Department of Water and Sanitation and WaterAid. ESTAMOS decided to continue through a pilot project in two small towns of Niassa Province, namely, Lichinga, the capital of Niassa and Mandimba, a provincial border town to Malawi. This paper will discuss ESTAMOS’ experiences in promoting ecological sanitation with this pilot project, problems encountered and recommendations for future work in this area.
