Over 8700 School in South Africa are effected by lack or poor sanitation.
Problems faced by schoolchildren and teachers in this kind of schools often include lack of basic water
supplies, sanitation and hygiene-enabling facilities;
Diseases related to inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene are a huge burden in in
our country. It is estimated that 88% of diarrhoeal disease is caused by unsafe water
supply, and inadequate sanitation and hygiene (WHO, 2004c). Many schools serve
communities that have a high prevalence of diseases related to inadequate water
supply, sanitation and hygiene, and where child malnutrition and other underlying
health problems are common.
We live in an age of tremendous technological & engineering breakthrough and advancement, yet we still have open-pit
Our youth that use pit toilets exposed to serious risk of illness, injury or death.
They are a major cause of CO2 pollution & Eutrophication, which ends up in our potable water and river sources and has
a detrimental effect on both our plant and aquatic life.
“We want to deploy 1000 e-containers at schools across the country in an attempt to eradicate open-pit
toilets for good. In doing this, we wish to improve the lives, health and wellbeing of millions of South Africans,
especially women and children. Will you join us?
