Build 6 toilet facilities for 300 people of Swada

by Hopeworks Ghana

Summary

Despite the effort to end open defecation by 2030, Swada, a village considered as the most deprived village amongst 160 villages in Ga South Municipality has no single toilet facility. This has resulted to the practice of open defecation which contributes to the contaminating effects of open defecation particularly on women and children. The project would improve access to sanitation which is a critical step towards reducing the impact of diseases and making open defecation unattractive.

Challenge

There are more than 300 people living in Swada, a village considered as the most deprived village amongst 160 villages in Ga South Municipality, with no toilet facility available to them. Although efforts are being made at providing toilet facilities to deprived communities, women and children especially who otherwise risk sexual harassment and assault when defecating at night and at scheduled areas. The project would improve access to sanitation for more than 300 people.

Solution

Hopeworks Ghana aims to construct 6 toilet facilities for the village. The people would be educated on the contaminating effects of open defecation and unhealthy practices which contribute to. Education would also be carried out on good sanitation practices. Participants would also be encouraged to share knowledge with neighbors.

Long-Term Impact

The project would provide 6 toilet facilities for more than 300 people of Swada, improving access to sanitation, reducing the impacts of diseases, reducing the impacts of contaminating effects of open defecation particularly on women and children, helping create physical environments that enhance safety and dignity.
