Location: Dessie town (Robit Kebele)

Project title: Welfare Improvement through accessing sanitation and hygiene facilities, Dessie town

Summary: The project wants to build the capacity of middle and small enterprise (MSEs) for vulnerable women and youth in business and facility management. Thereby the project contributes to the sustainable access and use of improved public toilet services, while also creating job opportunities for youth and women by integrating additional business opportunities such as tea/coffee, shower and fast food along with the public toilet services. Additionally, the waste of the latrine and the nearby cattle market will be used to introduce biogas as a sustainable energy source, helping to prevent deforestation.
