Re: introduction of ecosan toilets in our ourganization

Dear Mr Mbati,

Thank you for your post. I would be delighted to assist you further with the information that you require.

Are you aware of the Kenya ecosan blog? Ecosan network Kenya is a loose network of interested ecosan practitioners and other interested people in productive sanitation. It provides a platform for everybody interested in ecological sanitation to exchange ideas, to communicate events and to present ecosan projects. The blog can be found under this link.

We also have a diverse range of technical drawings which have been kindly provided by SuSanA members who have been involved in implementation and construction of sustainable sanitation projects. This information can be found under this link.

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) publishes case studies of sustainable sanitation projects to demonstrate the wide range of possible sanitation systems. Our case study collection comprises of projects from developing and industrialised countries, using various technologies, in urban and rural locations, for school sanitation or in informal settlements. The emphasis is on practical experiences, costs, lessons learnt and long-term impacts achieved. These case studies are useful for planners, engineers, researchers and the interested public. We collect descriptions of success stories as well as of "failed projects" so that we can collectively learn and improve.

Therefore all SuSanA materials are freely available following the open source concept for Capacity Development and non-profit use, so long as proper acknowledgement of the source is made when used. Our full library can be found under this link

In addition, I have compiled some case studies from Kenya that I thought might interest you.

All case studies can be found under the link

• UDDTs at a church and nursery school Nakuru, Kenya

• UDDTs for schools in Kenya

• Construction work of two institutional UDDTs, household toilets and ferro-cement water tank – Butere Mumias

• Cost optimization of single door UDDTs in Kenya

• GTZ EcoSan Project Sites in Kenya

• Household UDDTs in rural and peri-urban Kenya

• UDDT design drawings for schools

• Operation and Maintenance

• Technical Guide to EcoSan Promotion

Please feel free to contact me once more via email (please see profile) or through this discussion forum if you require additional information.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best regards,

Doreen Mbalo

introduction of ecosan toilets in our ourganization

Catholic diocese of Bungoma water program is located in western parts of Kenya. We want to introduce ecosan toilets in our organization. Do you have the following documents that can be of help:
1. Designs and bill of quantities manuals
2. Community, staff and artisans training manuals on ecosan technology
3. Names and contacts of organization or groups in Kenya that have applied the ecosan technology and its working
4. Any literature and materials on ecosan technology
With best regards I remain
Yours sincerely
