Mainly appointed as in-charge of Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), Solomon Lambon is also deeply in the business of directly converting communities into open defecation-free status. Quite new to the CLTS approach with a limitation in speaking the local dialect, Solomon had managed to convert two of his recently assigned three communities into verified ODF status.
“Realizing that our district was training several others on the Central Regional ODF League Table, we unanimously agreed to redouble our steps even beyond available official means. So far, from only three ODF communities in 2016, we have managed to reach 16 as at May 2018. About 14 more are being prepared for verification and we hope to pass them all.” Says a very optimistic sounding Solomon.
In terms of his M&E work, his colleagues say he keeps accurate and timely records on every field activity, progress and any challenges. He provides routine briefing on field data to management and donor partners through the District Environmental Health Officer (DEHO).
