Challenge

Nearly 10 per cent of the population of Pakistan lacks access to sanitary toilets, enabling diseases like typhoid, polio, diarrhea, jaundice, and cholera to flourish. The women and children with no toilets venture outside the house in pitch darkness with a gas lamp everyday with no access to toilet for the rest of the day making them vulnerable and unsafe.

Solution

The purpose of building low cost toilets for the village locals in 3 districts is to provide better hygiene and safe environment from harmful diseases to women and children along with the protection from the outsiders. AWARD will Construct low cost toilets for the most deserving families who are unable to construct it by their own. Low cost local flush toilets are roofless (associated with a small sewer line at the back of a house taken into the sumps or fields). and have 5-6 feet brick walls.

Long-Term Impact

Poor families including women and children will have access to the toilets in their homes and they don't have to wait for the early morning to rush to open. Through this intervention their health will considerably improve.
