Using Local Council Resolutions, all households with no latrines had to surrender two goats to the police and upon proven evidence of built latrines, the goats would be returned to the respective owners. Secondly, a list of all households which had improved their sanitation was read and made public to encourage and motivate non-compliance households to follow the same example. These two approaches went a long way to pushing people in Lobule to build latrines.
