Scaling Up Rural Sanitation and Hygiene

21 January in Insights by joanna  

Safe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene are crucial to human health and wellbeing. Sanitation and hygiene is not only a prerequisite to health, but contributes to livelihoods, school attendance and dignity and helps to create resilient communities living in healthy environments (World Health Organisation, 2020)

As some of you already know we are a social enterprise and always strive to co-create blended value: social, environmental and economic value. As such this year we decided to start a new project at our local school with 188 children and raise funds or partner with corporations to renovate our school toilet facilities.

Our current school toilet is not very pretty nor sustainable and it has a negative influence on our students

Our goal is to keep the Balinese style but add some fun aspects and also include cupboards with menstrual pads for older female students. We also aim to build a shower and make it available for all school children. We had something creative in mind.

If your company would like to contribute and allocate their Corporate Social Responsibility budget towards this project please get in touch or pm us on social media.
