Pit latrine Sampling and Household surveys

The following images were captured during a recent household survey and pit latrine sampling by members of Virginia Tech's Alexander Research Group. Reaching out to the community and working with them in this way is important not only in terms of gathering data, but in keeping them informed and appraised of developments and approaches and in helping to improve community health and well-being.
