African sanitation crisis

Today, 2.5 billion people live in cities around the world without access to safely-managed sanitation.

Past efforts to improve sanitation infrastructure and services in cities have struggled to gain momentum because decision-makers cannot take action . That’s Rural areas are the hardest hit population affecting women, youth, the elderly.

Many villages in Africa still do not have access to a TOILET, let alone the pit toilet nor chemical flushing toilet.

Toilets change everything. We believe that access to safely-managed sanitation is essential for people to lead healthy, dignified lives and, in turn, for cities to thrive. Every year the global sanitation crisis results in increased healthcare costs, decreased income and reduced productivity totalling more than US$200 billion.

Here’s what happens when cities don’t have the right sanitation infrastructure and services to support their populations.
