Pay toilets

Soweto Usafi group, a community-based organisation, built this modern toilet and charge users three US cents per visit.

"About 400 people use this toilet every day. It's clean and we give them tissue paper. Since we started the project diseases like malaria, cholera and typhoid have reduced,” says Margaret Wambui, the group’s organising secretary.

Ms Wambui said they built the toilet with the support of a local NGO, Maji na Ufanisi which funds water and sanitation projects in Kibera.
