Safe Sanitation

The village communities of Dzita and Dzita-Agbledomi are home to a population of around 10,000 people. While piped water is available, it is expensive and beyond the means of most of the community.

We support Dream Big Ghana NGO in its efforts to bring improved sanitation to the people of Dzita and Dzita-Agbledomi. The NGO’s toilets are based on the principles of ecological sanitation (EcoSan). They are classed as an improved sanitation facility by the World Health Organisation and UNICEF. They are above ground units that recycle human waste and use natural processes to transform that waste into an organic compost and fertilizer.

Our sanitation programme is implemented at the household level and also in schools, providing improved sanitation facilities to 1500 household members and 650 school children.
