I don't see why they wouldn't just dig a hole or find an empty space instead of crapping in their drinking water.
Is that even what they're doing? Do they have no toilets, or are they directing the waste lines into their water supply?
Just giving people things doesn't work. You have to teach them. If they aren't advanced enough to understand on their own then it needs to be explained to them. If they still don't understand, then good luck and goodbye.
When the French left Haiti, they left them with roads, modern (for their time) buildings and systems in place that they merely had to continue to follow. They were incapable and now live in hell.
They are already doing that. What they are trying to do, is to provide a set place for body functions, in a place that is not out in the open and near a ground water supply. Here if you have a septic system, you have to locate it a good distance away from a well. And of course, if we let our kids wander off and find an "open space" near the well, then you still wind up with undrinkable water. It's as much to do with changing the habit as it is the containment. Where I live, we wouldn't wonder off to the neighbors and find an "open spot". My neighbors dogs do that sometimes. The nice ones bring along an owner with a pooper scooper bag.Quote:

I need to add this link. It has the Slum Dog video clip on it too. Very memorable. It will be interesting when I travel to India this year.
