Desludging Hand Pump (MDHP) Resources
following documents were developed during piloting of the MDHP in Nias,
Indonesia during 2007 and 2008. All of the documents can be adapted for use.
If materials are used, please acknowledge that they are based on materials
originally developed by Oxfam GB. However, all documents with photos of
people are for internal use only and not for distribution to communities.
– This is a
comprehensive guide to introducing the MDHP at the government or I/NGO
level. It contains information on the 4 key aspects to consider prior to
implementation and information on assembling and using the pump.
Poster and Leaflet
– The poster was
used to raise awareness at the community level and encourage people to borrow
the pump where available in their community. The leaflet is a simplified
version of the MDHP Manual and is intended for use at the community level.
It contains key information and photos to guide the community in
assembling the pump and the steps of pumping.
– Copy of the power
point presentation from the MDHP Workshop.
– This is a 2 hour
module for use when training stakeholders (government, I/NGOs, and other
community institutions). Practicing desludging using water is one of the
main activities during the training. This module can be adapted for use
in community trainings.
