The Lst Toilet
While Rachuonyo North sub county boasts of 81% latrine coverage, the 19% of its households lack sanitary facilities. These households are mostly vulnerable or fall in difficult terrain. Mama Ogwedhi’s household in Maguti A Village is one such vulnerable households. Mama Ogwedhi’s husband and all her children passed on over 20 years ago. she depends on wellwishers for food and other basic needs. We therefore chose to commemorate WTD in a manner that has a direct impact. We reminded UCLTS teams at community level that it was possible for them to locally mobilize for materials and have the old lady acquire a latrine. They took the challenge and mobilized materials and labour from 15th to 19th November,2019. On the WTD, it was a pleasant sight for Mama Ogwedhi when the works commenced leading to ownership of a complete latrine for her use. This, too, has added to the existing number of individual latrine in the sub county.
