Why Sanitation?

Clean, Healthy living and well-being for all through sustainable Sanitation

Toilets act as critical links between order and disorder and between good and bad environment as the need to urinate and defecate is irrepressible.

Over 47 million Nigerians still defecate in the open, in street gutters, behind bushes or into open bodies of water, and over 30% of the world’s population is thought to consume food irrigated by wastewater.

The overall purposes of proper sanitation are to provide a healthy living environment for everyone, to protect the natural resources (such as surface water, groundwater, soil), and to provide safety, security and dignity for people when they defecate or urinate.

Open defecation comes with many risks. It can lead to waterborne diseases, cause preventable deaths, and hamper education and economic growth.

Our solution works in line with the UN SDG 2030 to provide equitable access to water, sanitation and hygiene services in order to eradicate the practice of open defecation.

Eradicating open defecation is not just a Nigerian priority. Today, an estimated 4.5 billion people globally don't have access to safe sanitation.
