Supporting schools to improve sanitation
ApaSan has provided financial and technical support to 68 schools for the construction of ecosan toilets (or flush toilets with wastewater treatment in a few cases) and training of teachers, pupils and caretakers in use and maintenance of the toilets as well as on hygiene practices. The toilets are usually attached to the main schools building, so students and teachers can use them without having to go outside in the cold. The toilets are built to modern standards, with tiles, heating, lighting, ventilation and hand washing facilities, and have separate areas for girls and boys, each with several closed cabins for privacy. Monitoring shows good acceptance and sustainable use and maintenance of the toilets. ApaSan has also built capacities of design and construction companies and worked with health authorities to solve legal issues for the acceptance of ecosan toilets for school sanitation.
