Improvement of latrines in Fundong Subdivision

by Better Family Foundation
Vetted

Summary

Some people in Fundong subdivision have non-covered latrines which bring flies into them and cause environmental pollution and dirtiness. Others use the bush or the streets -specially during the night- to excrete because of the lack of latrines along the street. We want to solve this problem by building latrines in the mayor streets and to make them accessible to everyone. We will work alongside the Council to keep them clean and safe.

Challenge

Some people in Fundong subdivision have non-covered latrines which bring flies into them and cause environmental pollution and dirtiness as well as diseases like cholera, diarrhea and dysentery. Others use the bush or the streets -specially during the night- to excrete because of the lack of latrines along the street. We want to solve this problem by building latrines in the mayor streets and to make them accessible to everyone. We will work alongside the Council to keep them clean and safe.

Solution

By building modern, accessible and clean latrines for everyone to be used. This will help to mitigate the spread of diseases and to create a more healthy environment in Fundong. The people that usually urinate and defecate in the street will be able to use these new latrines and the street will remain clean and safe for everyone.

Long-Term Impact

The entire Fundong Subdivision will see their lives improved in different aspects. First of all, the streets will be clean with no urine smell or dirtiness and they will be safer. It will also have an impact in the relationships between the villagers because some people simply don't care where they urinate, like in someone's store, and it causes many discussions and arguments. Above this, it will have a huge impact in people's health as we will avoid the spread of many diseases like cholera.
