You are like-d by the village around Makindu Primary School. They want you to mark their rainwater harvesting tank as illustrated above, for free, see more details here. When you agree, they get water which they currently have little of. When you agree, you will also enable many more similar schools and villages to get water and toilets.

Lack of toilet facilities at the right time in the right place contributes to dirty water and farms that are unsanitary, unpleasant and can spread infection. Farmers will fall sick and they will not be able to work and meet their obligations.

Dear BDBA,

Understandably, BDBA was designed not only to be open but also to be attractive to businesses.

Family businesses have connections with their local area going back generations – BDBA project is an opportunity for them to increase their level of the connection.

National and International chains, on the other hand, often have a strong social or community support ethos as part of their corporate policy, providing free or subsidised goods and services – and sometimes funding too – for local initiatives. They operate as part of communities and hold as much of a stake in supporting local projects and promoting civic pride as the locals themselves.

If BDBA project is not the kind that can lift our dignity, it cannot attract businesses.

The foregoing aside, why should BDBA project be similar to CBO projects?

Dear Sir,

RE: CLEAN WATER FROM ROADS FOR THE WATER STARVED 

This letter is open because it will help to shape an image for roads that makes a lasting and positive impression on local people and visitors. This is important for local people and visitors alike. 

Please allow us to, at our cost, add and maintain water filters along your good roads, especially where the roads cross water starved villages. The filters and related signages will form part of existing road furniture. Note that the filters are easy to maintain.

We ask to do this because you may not be planning to do this instantly yet roads pollute water – in photo is just one of ways the roads pollute rainwater.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Regards,

Dear Sir,

RE: PROVISION & MAINTENANCE OF CLEAN TOILETS ALONG ROADS FOR FREE USAGE 

This letter is open because promoting public access to toilets is not only about increasing provision, improving the quality and cleanliness of toilet facilities, signage and other information about what is available. It is also about sharing information – including intentions to provide, small details like signposting, and mapping of, local toilets – that help to shape an image for roads, towns and cities that makes a lasting and positive impression on local people and visitors. This is important for local people and visitors alike. 

Please allow us to, at our cost, add and maintain SANI SOLAR toilets along your good roads for free usage by road users. The toilets, related signages and access will form part of existing road furniture (like drainage systems, bus stops etc). Note that the toilets don’t use water, they use solar heat instead. The toilets will manufacture fertiliser for locals.

We ask to do this because you may not be planning to do this instantly, yet Kenya Ministry of Health and road users expect road services to include toilet facilities that are accessible, clean and safe.

Last week, director of public health in Kenya Ministry of Health, Kepha Ombacho, said ‘..all banks, supermarkets, parks, bus stations and other public places must have clean water and sanitation systems…In Nakuru and Narok, a bus driver can’t stop on the way and let passengers go and defecate in the open. They will be arrested and fined. This is what should be happening in all the counties’.

While proposing that buses should have in-built toilets, many members of public have welcomed this directive.

The truth is that very few of us can afford fares for buses with inbuilt toilets and we cannot stop call of nature so the busses must stop where we (with your support) will provide toilet facilities.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

RaHaSolutions
