Challenge

According to an European Union Expert on sanitation, Ekiti State has the highest rate of open defecation practice in the South West. Over 1.7 million people practice open defecation in public spaces. In Ayebode LGA, the only maternity health center lacks a toilet for women, especially pregnant women who are most affected. The town also lacks access to clean drinking water, the only shallow well available produces unclean water making it difficult f to practice proper hygiene.

Solution

This project seeks to provide 3 units of toilets and two bathrooms as well as a bore hole to provide clean water, benefiting over 3,000 women and children. The major goal of the project is to improve the health and well being of women and children living in Ayebode, as well as other rural community members by providing a decent lavatory for the Maternity Health Care Centre as well as teach residents on the need to imbibe healthy practices.

Long-Term Impact

To end the indignity of open defecation that women (especially pregnant women) have to go through. To decrease to a significant level the high rate of infection associated with unhygienic practices. To decrease infection (sexual and reproductive) among women. To improve the hygiene and standard of living of women. To educate women, especially mothers on safe health practices on maternal and reproductive health
