How is the Solution solving this social issue?

Makeshift toilets come with overhead water storage and the structure designed to carry 1.5 ton of water tanks. With the narrow laneways, really narrow stairways and lack of regular and consistent power sources, water et al, in many under-served communities, conventional construction methods have limitations. Having a light modular construction system like bolt-able heavy duty slotted angle iron frames makes this a flexible and light option also considering that the existing foundations are not equipped to add another conventional floor. Thus the makeshift toilets are a very well thought of and engineered solution to the problem of lack of access to toilets.

Sustainability of the Solution

The toilets are constructed with sturdy, sustainable materials. In the case of a bio-toilet, the bacteria in the digester needs to be changed every one year. The hygiene of the toilet has to be maintained to ensure no communicable diseases spread through usage of common toilets. Given all these, the toilets can become a permanent infrastructure in under-served communities.

Expected Outcome of the Solution

  1. Access to dignified toilets in homes, schools, work place.
  2. Reduction in spread of communicable diseases caused by open defecation.
  3. Safety and Security for women
