An aquatic plants lagooning system built to serve a community toilet complex for 300 women
Very small land holdings, high water table and a dependency on open wells for most uses render conventional sanitation choices unsuitable.

This is not scavenging! The product from these toilets smells like good garden soil. It has to be seen to be believed. It has a market value as a
clean organic soil improver.
The product from these toilets is safe and inoffensive to handle.
Bananas growing on direct-feed urine and wash water (we also grow bittergourd, chillies and potted plants).

Reaching hearts and minds. Street dramas raise awareness of hygiene, health, water and the environment…
