Sabana Grande, Nicaragua

Alexandra and Gabriela traveled to Sabana Grande, Nicaragua to work with locals to build and understand the construction process of latrines.

project highlight: Dry Latrines in Nicaragua

Sabana Grande is a small, agricultural based community located in Nicaragua. The ETHOS Center students worked with Promotores Solares Agro-Ecologicas (PSAE), a member of Grupo Fenix. The team worked on the dry eco-latrine pilot project designed to improve public health and quality of life, and they constructed the latrines to understand the local construction methods and analyzed the engineering aspects of the project. Once the latrines were complete, four dry latrine construction manuals were written, two for each available size and in both Spanish and English.
