HON IMORO SANDI: DISTRICT CHIEF EXECUTIVE, DAFFIAMA BUSSIE ISSA DISTRICT
DISTRICT ODF PROFILE
The Daffiama Bussie Issa (DBI) District is one of many districts which have proven the power of the CLTS approach and making communities ODF. As at the end of 2015, DBI had no record of even a single ODF community. When the district authorities decided to confront the issue after an institutional triggering in 2015, the district has never looked back and as at April 2018, 57 out of the 105 communities in the district had been declared ODF. CLTS staff in the district attribute the sudden outpour of success stories primarily to the DCEs – both current and the immediate past. They have demonstrated personal interest and belief in the approach and also in preventive health.
