Campaign Story

In the Matopos region of Zimbabwe, local volunteers identified 49 families infected or affected with HIV/AIDS who lack a toilet. This means that these families are defecating and urinating in the tall grasses or forests surrounding their homes. AFCA is building build long drop toilets using recycled materials, providing the families with decent and safe toilets. A solar lamp will complete the package, allowing beneficiaries to use the facilities with the aide of a light.

With a hired local builder leading the charge in each area where the building will take place, families will contribute with their own labor, giving them the dignity of being part of the solution to a terrible problem. Families will be trained on how to use the toilets, making sure they are kept fly and smell free.
