By eliminating or reducing waterborne sanitation and pathogens within the sanitation cycle through the SavvyLoo (using solar heat and desiccation) we ensure that those in informal and refugee settlements have access to uncontaminated water and safe, dignifying sanitation.
We eliminate the need for water flushing, as well as faecal and sanitary discharge in the water table and water byways, thereby reducing the spread of such infectious diseases among the populace. This places less strain on the agency's environmental, logistical and medical service's network, and reduces the number of people with immuno-compromised systems entering the network from which secondary disease usually takes place.
The solution is mobile, lightweight, unisex and dignifying, allowing users to use the facilities in safety, as they can be positioned close to or even in refugee dwellings, removing the greatest vector of attack on refugee women and children: when they have to go to the bathroom.
Coupled with the SavvyLoo is a business system that drives further employment, economic opportunity and a path to income, lifting people out of the current stressed situation and into a better lifestyle, which further lessens the pressure on the health and logistical deployment network of the donor/ refugee agency.
