Ditching Pit Toilets

4.5 billion people around the world do not have safely managed sanitation facilities and 2.3 billion people do not have basic sanitation services (WHO 2017).

Toilets are not something we usually think about our even appreciate but for billions of people around the world the lack of access to proper sanitation facilities affects their daily life. Poor sanitation facilities leads to polluted water sources, the spread of diseases, and disempowers communities.

About 80% of schools in Limpopo province rely on pit latrine toilets. The health risks of using pit toilets are huge. Young learners are susceptible of falling in and drowning due to the lack of proper seats. Diseases quickly spread and learners are often sick.  Most toilets do not have locks or even doors, and female students have reported skipping school during their menstrual cycle due to feeling uncomfortable and embarrassed using pit toilets while managing their menstruation.

Improving sanitation at schools brings dignity back to learners and ensures that students have a clean and healthy environment to learn and grow.

When we invest in WASH+ (water, sanitation, hygiene, and nutrition) at schools in rural South Africa we teach students that they matter and that their health and education matters.
