[[Natural Resource Management]] Extension Agent / [[Environmental Education]] / Forestry in [[Komboko]], [[Fatoma]], [[Mopti]]
Research for this paper was conducted while serving as a water/sanitation Peace Corps
 
Volunteer in the Philippines from 2006 to 2008. After two months of cultural and language
 
training I was assigned to the Municipality of San Joaquin, Iloilo on the island of Panay. In San
 
Joaquin I worked with counterparts from the municipality and community on various projects
 
related to water resources, solid waste management, and coastal resource management.
 
One of these developments was a pilot project of Biosand Water Filters (BSFs) which
 
eventually resulted in providing a supplemental livelihood for a local I befriended. Towards the
 
end of my service I became interested in assessing the best strategies for starting and sustaining
 
BSF projects. I interviewed four of my fellow Peace Corps Volunteers and a Non-Governmental
 
Organization employee all of whom worked on BSF projects within the Philippines. This paper is
 
a collaboration of those experiences written to benefit future implementers of the BSF Technology.
 
Furthermore, this paper is submitted to complete my master’s degree in civil engineering at
 
Colorado State University in conjunction with the Peace Corps Masters International program."

I was a [[forestry]] / [[environmental education]] volunteer in a little (150-200 people)Fulani village called [[Komboko]]. I lived in a small house made of [[mud bricks]]. No electricity, running water, TV. The villagers were mostly herders and spoke only their local language, Fulfulde (no French).  
  
 +
I was trained to do a variety of forestry and conservation related activities such as:
 +
* build [[mud stoves]] (to conserve fuel wood)
 +
* graft fruit trees
 +
* grow [[tree nurseries]] and plant the trees
 +
* combat [[soil erosion]]
 +
* grow live fencing

In the end my most satisfying job was illustrating training manuals for other volunteers to use as visual aids when working on their own projects. I also enjoyed visiting [[Tubani So]], the Peace Corps training village and talking with the new trainees and preparing them for life in their villages.

Natural Resource Management Extension Agent / Environmental Education / Forestry in Komboko, Fatoma, Mopti

I was a forestry / environmental education volunteer in a little (150-200 people)Fulani village called Komboko. I lived in a small house made of mud bricks. No electricity, running water, TV. The villagers were mostly herders and spoke only their local language, Fulfulde (no French).

In the end my most satisfying job was illustrating training manuals for other volunteers to use as visual aids when working on their own projects. I also enjoyed visiting Tubani So, the Peace Corps training village and talking with the new trainees and preparing them for life in their villages.
