Summary

Gimdi is a village 45 miles south of Kathmandu and has a population of 2500 people over a 25km area and only one toilet. Our aim is to provide 70 long drop toilets, providing safe clean sanitation to the villagers enhancing the safety of vulnerable adults, young girls and boys and as an end result providing fertiliser for sustainable crop growth. Health, Welfare and safety of vulnerable adults and children are a major concern and with this project we can make a difference.

Challenge

The major concern is the lack of toilet facilities and the safety of children in particular young girls. Imagine having to walk in the dark to a toilet, walking through excrement due to having no toilet facilities. Imagine using a toilet with no lock or no door, Imagine if you are a teenage girl going out in the dead of night, frightened of who or what may be lurking in the shadows

Solution

The provision of toilets will provide a safe environment to perform natural bodily functions and enhance safety, improve health and reduce illness.

Long-Term Impact

The provision of safe environment to perform a natural bodily function and to use the waste by-product as a natural compost fertiliser to grow crops and improving the life of 2500 villagers. The additional benefits are to provide a source of fertiliser for sustainable crop growth. Long drop toilets are used in many countries as composting provision using waste and turning it into usable compost
