In the far western bulge of the African continent, in a landscape once ‘discovered’ by Portuguese explorers and still dominated by baobab trees, mangrove swamps, sea-going pirogues and huge rivers disgorging into the Atlantic Ocean, is a very special school sanitation programme. In Casamance, southern Senegal, a long-running civil insurgency has disrupted regular life and inhibited development in every area. But an extraordinary effort, based in Zinguinchor, the regional headquarters, has been made to keep the schools running and even enable them to improve. [authors abstract]
