State/community led public toilets in high density areas like markets and bus stations are often in an appalling state because of the
lack of resources, interest and incentive for adequate operation and maintenance. This clashes with the growing demand for quality sanitation services. As a result, people in these areas are more vulnerable to
natural disasters and are often exposed to multiple disease vectors associated
with poor environmental health and sanitation.
Live Clean Initiatives has developed a product known as EFLUSH (Environmentally Friendly Urban Sanitation and Hygiene) that provides access to public toilet and shower facilities that are clean, safe and affordable for people living in the peri-urban.
Low income people and/or peri-urban areas.
Mission and Vision
Improved access to basic hygienic
sanitation facilities for low income peoplewith a focus on women.
fee-paying toilets are built from cargo containers that are refurbished for sanitary
use and are then installed in high density unplanned settlements, markets and
border posts. The facilities are fully off-grid, so they do not need connection
to sewer systems. They are eco-friendly in the sense that they recycle all the
grey water (water used to wash hands) for use in the toilets. The human waste
is recycled to produce biogas and organic fertilizer. The energy source for
lighting and the water pumps is solar.
We provide biodegradable sanitary pads to all women in need, and sanitary waste bins are available in each toilet, allowing women access to clean and safe facilities that not only provide for their sanitary needs but also their menstrual needs.
Our toilets are cleaner than any other service providers in the vicinity of operation. We have contracted a cleaning agency to make sure that our standards do not drop. This dramatically reduces risks of exposure to multiple vector diseases. They are safe - they are guarded with a wire fence and fully functional CCTV cameras. They are off grid and all waste is recycled. All these added benefits in comparison to our competitors and our service is offered at the same price as theirs.
Women use the facilities at the same price as the men.
Women also have more sitting toilets than men.
Planned Goals and Milestones
We plan to increase our reach with the sanitation facilities. Wehave been given approval by the Government to roll out to 60 sites the current communal container setups across Zambia in all markets and border towns
