This case study presents the implementation of a pilot project of ecological sanitation in two schools located in the rural area of Apulo municipality, allowing the generation of knowledge about its use, maintenance and benefits, while serving as demonstration model for the two communities. At the same time, the technology is validated and evaluated in a scholar context in Colombia.
Regarding the long-term impacts; the main expected outcome of the project is the generation of acceptance and ownership of a new sanitation technology for rural communities. This project highlights the role of schools as demonstration center for the community in rural areas. As a result of this project, together with the interest of the community and various organizations, these sanitation systems are currently being replicated in rural households in the area.
