GAMA Improves Sanitation Through Innovative, Affordable Toilets

Written by | June 13, 2019 | 0
11 HOURS AGO  HEALTH Initially, David Arthur and his family shared a pit latrine which belonged to another person in their neighbourhood at Baba Yara. The pit latrine had a lot of houseflies. The stench was also awful. But in March this year, he heard of innovative and affordable toilets being sold by the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA). Arthur was interested because of the flexible terms of payment and so decided to buy one. “I first paid GH 600 cedis and later on added GH 200 cedis.

It is rather neat and you feel comfortable using it.” The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) report in 2015 showed that Ghana performed poorly in the area of sanitation where only 15 percent
