Household Toilet Construction

Owning and having access to her own toilet was a distant dream for Rita Ama Yeboah. “All my life I have been compelled to use a toilet which was also used by other people in my neighborhood,” she said. Due to this Rita was susceptible to diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, Hepatitis A and her worries exacerbated when she got pregnant with her first child.
