We are looking for funding to replicate the dry toilets we have built in the village of Carambolim in other areas or in shacks on the beaches of Calangute, Candolim Anjuna and Vagatore. Our partners COMMUNITY/T the architects are a part of GLOBAL SHAPERS COMMUNITY (Panjim Hub) which is a network of Hub developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities.
This is an initiative of the World Economic Forum.
EcoLoo is a dry toilet and is the ideal solution in areas that have severe water pollution, water logging or in areas that are dry.
The time required for building each unit is 2 weeks. Eco-san toilets are constructed above the ground-level with two chambers and two squat holes with washing and urine separation facilities. Urine and wash water is diverted to root zone pits to filter the grey water to usable water and prevent mingling with human feces. The alternate chambers are used and once filled would be used as a manure after one year period to the agricultural fields.
We have constructed one as a pilot project to establish its sustainability and usability.
We are looking to replicate this model which has been proven effective through the heavy rains in Goa in other villages/areas which have no access to sanitation other than in the open.
We would be to building 5 Toilets in the surrounding areas of Carambolim which would cost Rs 138730 in total.
Request you all to please supports us to help the village community.
