The project will provide low-cost dry latrines, support vegetable gardening and raising of small animals and provide capacity-building activities for marginalized farmers and coastal dwellers.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The problem is the lack of toilet facilities among marginal farmers and coastal dwellers and the health and sanitation issue related to it. A related problem is the lack of nutrition especially among children and the lack of livelihood opportunities for them.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will build dry toilets and then use the human waste as organic materials for the garden. A related activity will be to provide small livelihood activities such as raising of small animals.
Potential Long Term Impact
We will target 3,000 people and try to solve health and sanitation problems among them via the implementation of cheap dry toilets and then using the human waste for vegetable gardening and tree planting activities.
