Towards the middle of last year, Sanitech achieved the goal set and developed their patented Khusela (DST) Dry Sanitation Toilet unit that can be retrofitted to an existing pit latrine to not only prevent children from falling in to the pits, it prevents the spread of disease, is serviceable and protects the environment from contamination.
A learnership programme for 60 females from previously disadvantaged backgrounds, with disabilities, was recently implemented by Sanitech, a division of Waco Africa. The learners, who all reside in rural areas around South Africa, embarked on a General Education and Training Certificate in Hygiene and Cleaning.
