The first year of E-CAP’s rural component saw the construction of 17 Otji-toilets at five communal farms in the Hardap region. Eight of these toilets have a urine diversion system (UDS) and the remaining nine a non-UDS system.
The five farms where toilets were constructed together with representatives from the community are Grundorn South, Nico Noord, Laurensia, Doringdraai and Nico, all situated in the Hardap region, southern Namibia. A signing ceremony was held on the 2nd of September 2011 at Grundorn South on the Odendaal farm, where a memorandum of agreement was entered into between the households where toilets were constructed and the DRFN. During this ceremony the toilets were officially handed over to the users. Representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF); the Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation Coordination (DWSSC); the Regional council and the Traditional Authority were also present at the ceremony.
