Improving Economic Position and Quality of Life

 

Two thirds of the urban population in sub-Saharan Africa, millions of people, live in slums or informal settlements that lack access to basic sanitation.

 

Global Partnerships (GP) invests in manufacturers and distributors that provide households living in informal settlements with access to affordable, quality sanitation.

 

Who is Served?
Urban households in informal settlements living on less than $3.10/day.

What is Delivered?
• Hygienic community toilets
• Hygienic in-home toilets
• Waste management/ removal services

Why is it Impactful?
Household health and economics improve because of :
• Access to improved sanitation
• Reduced use of unhygienic sanitation services
• Lower rates of diarrhea and sanitation-related diseases

How is it Sustained?
• Pay per use for community toilets
• Monthly fees for household toilet waste removal and treatment
• Waste converted to retail products (biogas, fertilizers, etc).
