Small Ideas, Big Solutions

Latrines are major sources of disease and pathogens. Kickstart has developed an igenious form of protecting those who are susceptible to the effects of latrine exposure. Latrine cover slabs are circular in shape and concrete in material. They are manufactured on site in very little time. The lids can be easily placed over the latrines and make for a tight seal. They require minimal amounts of concrete and zero steel, which makes them affordable and practical. Sanitation goals all over the world are being met with clever designs like the latrine cover. Thanks, Kickstart.
