Blue Triangle : African Latrine Aid Program / Latrine

Blue Triangle : African Latrine Aid Program

As diarrheal diseases have been the 3rd leading cause of death in Africa, which mainly results from the lack of sanitation. Blue Triangle is designed to conduct hygiene education and efficiently construct and maintain the low-cost latrines. The product is firm and light, an adult can easily carry 5 pieces (a set) when there is no driveway to the villages. Apart from the squatting pan, all the other part of the latrine can be built by local materials. Through the whole process, the awareness of hygiene can be aroused and sanitary condition of villages can be greatly enhanced. The feces will no longer be a threat to villagers’ health.
