School Sanitation Tanzania


Tanzanian schools lack proper sanitation. We are installing composting dry toilets to Madale village schools in Dar es Salaam region. Composting toilets do not need water neither septic tanks. Faces are composted to manure and urine separated and mixed with hand washing water and used to irrigate the school yard garden. Toilets are installed by Tanzanian and international volunteers and interns.

We target to show the Tanzanian public a new innovative sanitation solution for the schools where most of them y have poor sanitation, no water available and no funds to use flush toilets. Dry composting toilets are low cost investment that can be a game changer for the sanitation problems in the Tanzanian schools. Poor sanitation commonly causes diarrhoea in the schools and children lack schooling dates and face overall health hazards.


Composting dry toilets secure hygienic sanitation where water is not available and flush toilets are non affordable investment.

Long-Term Impact

We need to showcase the Tanzanian government and public in common that composting dry toilets will work properly. Composting toilets in Madale village will affect lives of some 15,000 people including some 7,000 school children. School toilets will also showcase the dry toilets as an option for the households as some 70% of the village households lack toilets altogether.
