Content - Summary

This case studies discusses a project in which pit latrines were replaced with UDDTs in a school. The project provides sanitation for 200 students and their teaching staff. This project is part of the larger EU-funded ROSA project.

The Nelson Mandela School had problems of frequent collapses of pit latrines and the school approached ROSA Arba Minch for a solution. So, the objectives of the project were:

· to reduce the repeated pit collapses and to have a
sustainable toilet condition.
· to improve the toilet conditions with less odour and flies.

The construction of this UDDT is only one part of several interventions towards improvement of sanitation in Arba Minch. Solid waste like green plants is also used by the school for co-composting. Research on operation and maintenance of the toilets, handling, reuse of the toilet
products for crop trial and transporting is ongoing on 15 UDD toilets in the town. Women groups organized to collect town solid waste are also involved in collecting and transporting the excess urine from the school to the co-compost producing youth group which is located in a distance of about 5 km.
