Elite Latrine Digging Squad Training

August 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

The time has come to offer the world’s second Elite Latrine Digging Squad (ELDS) Training on the Superior Hiking Trail! The training will take place in the Schroeder or Tofte area (exact location TBD) on August 17 at 10:00. Training is expected to end no later than 3:00.

This training is open anyone who is interested and willing to help out with the #2 problem on the Superior Hiking Trail. Please only plan to attend if you are interested in digging at least 2 latrines over the course of the next year. Space is limited, just like the space in our latrines.

Please register in advance: Click here to get registered for the training.

Returning members of ELDS are also invited to attend to learn new techniques and share their knowledge with new ELDS members.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Elite Latrine Digging Squad?
ELDS is a group of trained volunteers who are dedicated to helping out with the re-digging of SHT latrines.

Does the group go out together to dig latrines?
Only for the training! Afterwards, you are on your own. We encourage each ELDS member to bring a friend with when they go out to dig. Always volunteer with a buddy!

What should I bring?
Bring work gloves, comfortable work clothes, leather work boots (8″ high preferable), water bottles, sun screen, bug spray or head net, and a pack for things you will need for the day. Long sleeves are highly recommended. We will provide tools, personal protective equipment, and lots of great scatological humor.

If you have any questions, please contact Tamer Ibrahim at [email protected]. Thanks!
