Improving sanitation with dry toilets

We asked our artisans in Kenya what they would really need in their day-to-day life. Out of many issues one rose above others: poor sanitation systems. The current sanitation facilities in the area are inadequate, unhygienic and are not sustainable as they have to be rebuilt after a certain time.

According to Unicef, 16 million (50 percent) Kenyans do not have adequate sanitation and 50 per cent of rural households have no toilet facilities at all - and where they exist they are generally unhygienic. This has known to lead to the loss of life, missed schooling, disease, malnutrition and poverty.

Mifuko Trust's solution: an ecological dry toilet which composts feces provided in cooperation with the Global Dry Toilet Association of Finland (Käymäläseura Huussi Ry). Dry toilets enable a sustainable and hygienic way to recycle human waste into fertilizer that can be used in nearby vegetable fields or sold to other local families for much needed extra income. This sanitation system is affordable as it is built from recycled materials and the locals can earn extra income by selling the composted waste.

This story is just one example of the successful activities Mifuko Trust has been doing in Kenya.
