The Nollywood Coalition to End open Defecation (NOCTENOD) is set to reach 2 Million People come 19 November 2017 as Nigeria’s most popular actors join force to give birth to a National Grassroot Movement aimed at reducing the spread of Sanitation and Hygiene related diseases across the 36 states.
NIGERIA SANITATION AND HYGIENE PLAN, facilitator of the NOLLYWOOD COALITION TO END OPEN DEFECATION is proud to have DR. SAMUEL VICTOR-EKOM as its COUNTRY DIRECTOR and the GUEST OF HONOR at the Flag of Ceremony of the Coalition. NOCTENOD as part of its Coalition Activities will be distributing 1 Million WATER EASY TOILET Facilities in order to demonstrate our Community Total Sanitation Philosophy. This is an emerging initiative with great potential to improve access and use of sanitation products and services. Our intervention is to ensure that more communities are quickly adapting to the modern sanitation system.. The WET initiative scheme is in three models “the WET products make use of a unique, low-cost squatting pan that function as a water-seal toilet which eliminate odour and flies and its water requirement for flushing is minimal.
The Coalition through its advocacy and other numerous activities is mandated to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of total sanitation approaches nationwide considering the fact that sanitation crisis had been deepening over the years in the country. To address the urgent need for a total sanitation approach that would move Nigeria to have closer access to improved sanitation for all by 2030, NIGERIA SANITATION AND HYGIENE PLAN is calling on all Stakeholders to contribute more positive actions to sustain the vision.
The Coalition as part of its Flag-off activities amongst other things will feature a roadshow and concert starring local artists with an anticipated attendance of over 6,000 people. There shall also be a ‘Walk of Shame’, that will mobilize the media as both a key target and partner. Over 20 journalists is expected to participate in First Hand sight-seeing of open defecation areas as well as finger-pointing at those who may be responsible. This is part of the Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach, where communities come together and are ‘triggered,’ or jointly agree to end the practice of open defecation.
