Commitment to Action

Ikotoilet-Sanitation Model for the Urban Poor

Commitment by

Ecotact - Innovating Sanitation

In 2009, Ikotoilet committed to build 100 toilet facilities in 15 selected Kenyan municipalities, serving at least 300,000 people daily with safe water and sanitation. This commitment would also create a pool of 1000 employees to support the implementation of these toilet facilities. The Ikotoilet model aims to reduce open defectation as the predominant method of human waste disposal in urban slums, a situation that offers great planning, health, and socioeconomic challenges to governments and development partners, and increase access to safe water and sanitation for the urban poor in Kenya and the region.
