LATEST NEWS – Comanche Eco-sanitation Project formally kicked-off

On Saturday 17th February, a group consisting of Rotarians from Rotary Club La Paz-Sopocachi, students from UCB (Universidad Catolica Boliviana) as well as staff from EWB-B (Engineers Without Borders Bolivia) and CEDESBOL formally kicked-off the Eco-sanitation Project in the Municipality of Comanche, Bolivia.

The project aims to provide water and sanitation facilities to some 175 families in five communities, including the provision of WASH-training as well as a local community governance set-up.

The formal opening was attended by principal indigenous authorities from the zone, municipality representatives and almost 40 beneficiaries. It was an emotional ceremony and all the authorities and beneficiaries are very grateful for the project and they give the thanks to everyone involved in raising the funds for the project.

There is a strong commitment in the local community to complete the planned works in the highest quality in the planned time-frame.

Comanche Eco-sanitation Project

The main objective of the Comanche eco-sanitation project is to provide eco-sanitation services to five communities of the Municipality of Comanche, La Paz, Bolivia. The project scope includes:

  • Capacity development workshops for teachers of educational units, authorities of the municipality, technical staff of the municipality and the farmers’ association.
  • The construction of 175 eco-latrine facilities, including a solar shower device.
  • The formation of community based committees trained to confront technical problems and to establish a governance model for the sanitation services in each community

The Eco-sanitation project was initiated by three Rotary-sponsored IHE Delft Institute for Water Education (the Netherlands) alumni, who all graduated in April 2016:

  • Afnan Agramont obtained a MSc in Water Resources Management and is now working as CEO at Engineers Without Borders Bolivia
  • Mariel Ugalde obtained a MSc in Water Services Management and is now working as water consultant at the World Bank Group, Bolivia.
  • Scott Taggart obtained a MSc in Sanitary Engineering and is now working as Commercial Engineering Systems Leader – GE Water and Process Technologies, Ontario, Canada.

These Rotary scholarships form an essential element of the strategic partnership between Rotary and IHE-Delft, with the objective to provide young water-professionals with relevant knowledge and expertise that can be subsequently used in Rotary WASH projects, this eco-sanitation project in Comanche being a prime example.

This project will be implemented in two phases to reach the final objective. The first phase of the project will provide sanitation services to 62 families, funded through Rotary Foundation Global Grant GG 1745942, set-up by the Rotary Clubs of La Paz-Sopocachi (D4690) and Voorburg-Vliet (D1600), with financial contributions from Rotary Clubs and Districts, supplemented with funds from the World Fund from The Rotary Foundation (TRF).


The costs of phase 1 of the project can be broken down as follows:

It is also expected that the funding of the second phase will come from Rotary sources. A dedicated fundraising effort for this will be embarked upon simultaneously with the execution of phase 1 of the project. The second Phase of the project will incorporate the construction of an additional 113 latrines, to reach 100% of coverage in these 5 communities.
