Wish for WASH 2016 Learning Report

At the beginning of 2016, the Zambian branch of Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) worked with Wish for WASH (W4W), a Georgia Tech founded student startup, to retrofit one of the three-hundred Ecological Sanitation (EcoSan) toilets in a Lusaka’s peri-urban compound. The EcoSan toilets, originally constructed in 2010 as an improved form of sanitation, were found to be largely misused or unused altogether. A pilot, therefore, was conducted to test new design of a functional and desirable toilet facility that restored the superstructure of the EcoSan system. This is a comprehensive learning report following this pilot.
