Single-vault ecosan toilet
Single-vault ecosan toilet

This time and after identifying the beneficiaries for the project last January 2011, we are starting to build the first ecosan toilets. The toilet pictured here is a single-vault dry toilet.  A recycled 200-liter drum cut in half is used to store human waste. The materials used in our ecosan toilets are mostly locally-procured making our toilet cheap, robust and easy to construct. We aim by April to be able to make and distribute 75 toilets to 75 families.

A companion to the ecosan toilet is rainwater harvesting and we distribute recycled drums to the beneficiaries so they can use to harvest and store water.

Next step that we will do is to encourage our beneficiaries to undergo vegetable gardening in small plots around their homes and fields.
