Easy Latrine

Jeff Chapin with IDE Cambodia, Ministry of Rural Development, LienAid, and Rainwater Cambodia

The Easy Latrine was designed in 2009 as the first packaged hygienic latrine product in Cambodia. It serves low-income households in rural communities that either do not currently have a latrine or want to upgrade to a hygienic latrine. Providing desirable, low-cost latrine products to the rural poor can have a significant health and monetary impact on some of the most vulnerable segments of society. ^Interview ^with ^representative
