About the project:

Esididini Community Project was established in 2004. They have 87 children currently enrolled, aged 0-6 years old.

The challenge:

The pre-school is built out of blocks, however, Esididini Community Project has no toilets of its own. The pre-school makes use of 2 pit toilets for the teachers and children.

The need:

The compost toilet block will provide a safe and hygienic environment for the children and teachers.

A compost toilet differs from a septic tank system, by relying on aerobic conditions to break down the waste product, and access to water is therefore not a concern. With good sanitation standards in mind, compost toilets create a product which is safe, dry, easy to handle and only about 10-30% of its original volume. A compost toilet relies on natural principles and eradicates the need for harsh and harmful chemicals in the waste removal process. By mirroring the natural environment, naturally occurring bacteria and fungi break down the waste into an oxidized, compost-like product.
