slide4

Fear of localised flooding persists on all sides for villages along the river:including the dam and overflowing open canals.

slide6

The risk is that these leach pit and open hole toilets can contaminate drinking water sources during floods.

slide11

These ‘dry pit’ toilets have two three holes; one for solid waste, one for urination and one for washing.Two chambers means that once one is sealed to compost, the other is used in the interim 9 months.

slide12

Ash is put into the faeces to help the composting process and avoid smells;while the urine and waste water flow out through pipes – used for kitchen gardening.

slide13

50 toilets built across 11 villages made it difficult to really propogate the concept widely in each village.

slide19

slide20

As another facet of the project, several schools in the area were provided with water pipe connections and toilet repairs .

slide23

It’s a step forward; but how well eco-san will be accepted and sustained bycommunities in this flood-prone region remains a challenge to be seen!
