School-Led Total Sanitation
Enquiring child participation in School-Led Total Sanitation (SLTS) programs in Ghana
This thesis presents:
- A global overview of trends in the sanitation domain and the position of CLTS/SLTS within this domain
- The introduction and spread of CLTS/SLTS in Asia, starting from Bangladesh, towards Africa and South America.
- The introduction and characteristics of SLTS in Ghana
An interesting chapter discusses implications around SLTS that stem from its social characteristics, i.e., the cultural approval and disapproval of SLTS child triggering activities, and expanding on teachers' possible (negative) influence on school children's triggering. The author reflects on whether SLTS conflicts with internationally and nationally employed policies, programs and norms/culture, and on larger developmental paradigms of children's position, rights and participation in development programs.
