The Collaboratory’s Mali Water and Disabilities Study team, in partnership with World Vision Mali and the West Africa Water Initiative (WAWI), recently concluded their three-year assessment of the access and use of water and sanitation facilities by disabled and elderly persons. Dean Ray Norman just returned from Mali, where he gave the final presentation for this study in Bamako (the capital of Mali) to representatives for World Vision Mali, Ghana, Niger, Ethiopia, Zambia, and the U.S. The study’s team developed simple, low-cost alternatives to improve access to wells and latrines in Mali and provided recommendations to World Vision Mali and WAWI to ensure that their facilities will be accessible to all. This study was funded by a three-year, $150,000 grant from the Conrad Hilton Foundation.
