Samantha Passmore, a current ESD MPhil student, has won an Arthur Shercliff Travel Scholarship 2015. She will be using the award to travel to Honduras to investigate the viability of converting the business model of Water Expertise and Training (WET) Centres run by the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology  (CAWST) from a charity to a financially sustainable model. This will enable CAWST and their partners to educate a greater number of people in the field of water, sanitation and hygiene.
