SAUTI LATRINE PROJECT.

To reduce open defecation and urination, AWASO is supporting communities at household level and institutions to construct latrines at low cost especially in the slums of Jinja city. The intervention is focusing on the twelve districts of Busoga region through the latrine Infrastructure Development Program (LID), which target to construct 20,000 latrines for low income earners in the region.

This intervention is tailed to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6, that aims to ensure that everyone has a safe toilet/latrine and that no one practices open defecation by 2030. Through the Improved Sanitation and Hygiene (ISH) strategy that emphasizes demand creation, supply chain/social marketing and creating an enabling environment. We have so far constructed 50 sanitation facilities.

Through the ISH strategy we have identified, trained sanitation promoters and artisans within the communities who are able to carry out sanitation marketing at household and institution levels. As we offer varying technological options customized to individual demands with a major focus on drainable latrines.

SATO A SANITATION BUSINESS

ALLIANCE WATER SOLUTIONS (AWASO)

Henry Alodha a sanitation marketing officer with Alliance Water Solutions (AWASO) in both Busoga region and central Uganda says SATO products are easy to explain to sanitation beneficiaries that include households, schools, lodges, Churches among others because of their functionality, Visibility and affordability. It has proved to be a profitable venture to sales agents like him whom we supply SATOS at a low cost of less than £4 and they sell it at $8 including installation.

Because of the profit margin, Henry said that “He is able to pay house rent, meals and transport to the field and other things as deem necessary. Like any other business, Henry is challenged with people who poorly installs SATO’S without professionalism at times the beneficiaries are the culprit to this vice after buying them from stores, weak latrine floors and clients who don’t want to honor their debts. Alliance Water Solutions is promoting three types of SATO products, these include SATO PANS, SATO FLEX PANS and SATO STOOL. SATO’S are Toilets that use a mechanical and water seals to close off transmission from open air. It’s being promoted where squatting and pit latrines are used and it reduces disease transmission from flying insects that come into contact with human waste especially Trachoma and intestinal worms, it also eases gulping during emptying when the latrine are full as well as reducing throwing of sold materials into the latrine

It’s a hygienic way of improving lives in communities with affordable resources, they are easy to transport and save 80% water per flush by using less than 500ml of water and the polished surface is easy to clean which fulfills the vision and mission of AWASO  a “Clean environment, clean water a disease free community”

SATO A WORTHY BUSINESS
