Urban Sanitation

 
 

Aim

The aim is for all urban residents in Namibia to have access to improved sanitation. We work with a large network of volunteers in now 10 towns across the country, supporting residents in informal settlements to build safe toilets.

 
 

Key Intervention Areas

  1. Awareness raising campaigns: Through a large network of volunteers, we implement awareness raising campaigns in informal settlements, with a focus on hygiene and toilet construction.
  2. Toilet construction: We construct low-cost demonstration toilets that are built according to WHO health standards, and incentivize residents in informal settlements to build their own toilets.
  3. Open Defecation Free (ODF): We work with informal settlement communities to make their areas ODF, and to create a healthier and safer environment especially for children and women.
 
 

Coverage

We work with a large network of volunteers in now 10 towns across the country, supporting residents in informal settlements to build safe toilets.

 
 

Success Stories

In the height of the Covid pandemic, our network of volunteers installed more than 68,000 hand washing facilities (tippy-taps) in the informal settlement of 22 towns across Namibia.
