Ending water-borne diseases, one drop at a time

This project was commissioned to look at the impact of United Purpose’s WASH programme in Malawi, the largest in the country. The output was two films, as well as a few hundred photographs, looking at the local drivers of sanitation issues and how UP’s interventions have helped 25% of the Traditional Authorities become open defecation free.

The films look at UP’s implementation of Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), an innovative methodology for mobilising communities to end open defecation, as well as their approach towards capacity building, WASH within rural schools, soap production and their creation of a market for sanitation masons to provide low-cost toilets.

Client feedback

Toby was an excellent videographer to collaborate with. He was very organised, an excellent communicator and, above all, delivered consistently high quality films for us that fit the brief and gave dignity and voice to all project partners. The ways in which he engaged with the project and communities he was working with really demonstrated his passion and deep understanding of the work, and it was a pleasure to work with him.
