“I and my wife do
not need to worry when our kids do toileting. We used to worry about the safety
when we worked with our previous toilet, it was not safe especially for young
children. Now it is so much different, as the toilet construction looks like a
house for us”. Mr Jackson in Jaong village with before and after pictures of his toilet.

"I live with my wife, we are only two as the kids now live
away from us. We did not have toilet at home, so we did it in the bushes around
our own house. It was not nice indeed, especially for old people like us. Now
it is different, we can do it comfortably, although the wall is made of bamboo,
but it is so comfortable for me and my wife”. Raphael Nage, Jaong Village - seen here with a fine crop of chiles and his new toilet.
“We used a very simple and not safe toilet before we were
supported, it was mainly covered by used packing plastic. Now, my family feels
very comfortable. We doing toileting, we feel it is just like sitting inside a
good house. Now the condition of the environment around the house is very much
