Composting Latrines at the GGM Clinic

Composting latrines

With the help from community youths, GGM will introduce the concept of composting latrines.  A total of 6 latrines will be built with 3 of the latrines in operation at any one time.  When a latrine becomes full the holding tank will be covered and allowed to dry.  The building shelter will then be moved to one of the three remaining latrines to be used until it becomes full.

The contents of the initial latrines, after one year, and when dry, then becomes composting material that can be used in gardens and fields. 

Sanitation is a tremendous problem for the community surrounding our clinic and the country as a whole.  If the youth can successfully complete this project they can then share what they have learned within their individual family units and spread the idea.
