Sanitation Ministry  Campaigns On The Provision Of Household Toilet Facilities Under GKMA Sanitation, Water Project



The Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources has organized a day market campaign on the provision of household toilet facilities under the GKMA Sanitation and Water Project.

The focus was to interact with traders and passerbyes and educate them on what the initiative entails and ultimately enlighten them on the need to subscribe to the installation of a biodigester toilet facility within their respective households.

Over 100 environmental officers known as town counselors were drawn from assemblies of beneficiary areas such as Kumasi metro, Asokwa, Oforikrom, Old Tafo, Suame, Kwadaso, Ejisu and Asokore Mampong were spread across the Kumasi Central Business District on Friday 5th August 2022 precisely at the Kejetia market.

Addressing the media on the sidelines, Emmanuel Addai- officer at Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources indicated that one of the aims of the project is to tackle open defecation; ultimately achieve SDG Goal 6 which is to ensure access to water and sanitation for all by the year 2030.

The household toilets provided under the project according to him are constructed at subsidized prices with a flexible mode of payment.

He therefore called on residents of all beneficiary areas to visit their assemblies for an affordable toilet facility.

About 30,000 household toilets are expected to be constructed under the project in eight Metropolitan and Municipalities within the greater kumasi.

An amount of $120m from the World Bank has been secured by government towards the expansion of the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area(GAMA) project to Greater kumasi (GKMA) aimed at addressing sanitation and water challenges.
