One out of every five Ghanaians defecates in the open and about 90% of all our excreta end up in streams and rivers –these rivers and streams become the main source of drinking water for most rural areas. Lack of proper sanitation can lead to the outbreak of diseases. A clean environment will keep us all healthy and safe from diseases including cholera, malaria, typhoid fever and other communicable diseases. Children and particularly girls – are denied
their right to education because schools lack private and decent sanitation facilities.
RUFA sanitation program seeks to educate the people on good sanitation practices and provide them with solutions to properly manage it.
