WASH (Water Sanitation and Health) Ablution Units

Bright kid Foundation has a specialised Infrastructure Development Team (IDT) that installs all the Early Childhood Development Centre infrastructure including safe and sanitary ablution units for both children and adults. Some preschools in informal settlements have access to waterborne sewage. In these cases, the IDT installs flushing toilets and connects them to the sewage lines. Other preschools, mainly in rural areas, have no access to waterborne sewage. In these cases, the IDT installs world class certified waterless ablution units made by Amalooloo. These do not have septic tanks, and require little or no maintenance.
