By: Luh Putu Kusuma Ririen (Balifokus)
BALIFOKUS supervised the program implementation of community-based sanitation located in three sub-districts of South Sulawesi (Angkona, Mangkutana, and Wara) on October 2012. There are five project implementations of MCK plus ++ run by the community independent groups (Kelompok Swadaya Masyarakat/KSM) and have been in the process into the final constructions.
The construction of MCK plus ++ projects are located in Margolembo Village, Mangkutana, East Luwu (left) and Laga Ligo Village, Wara, Palopo (right).
All the five projects started in 2012 in the three areas and the establishment of community independent groups was later followed to synergize the entire stages of program implementation. The existing community independent groups are KSM Turunan Bajo Berkarya, KSM Jaya Abadi, KSM Nusa Indah, KSM Cempaka, and KSM Datok Sulaiman and have been carrying out their responsibility to independently organize the construction as the major activity as well as organizing the technical management organization. The construction itself can be seen to have finished about 80 – 100 percent in each location. The observation result signified that most of the on-going constructions being performed in the range of proper measures.
BALIFOKUS team observed the MCK plus ++ project in Majang Village, Tanete Riantang Timur, Bone.
The supervision activity was also followed by other related activity at four community independent groups in Tanete Riantang Timur area specifically to give feedback to convert their materials of wastewater treatment installations. Their option to replace the materials into the concrete one (the general installation type) was due to the local government instruction on the consideration of the appropriate technology to be applied among the community. The community independent groups are KSM Kampong Baru, KSM Lajjame and KSM Potongnge. These materials installation replacement would have still been suitable to the community activities in sanitation and support the basic needs for encouraging as well as improving their healthy practices.
