How does this gift help?:
Tried, tested and 100% natural… this isn’t just any pile of poo, it’s the ideal mix of manure, organic fertiliser and training in eco-friendly farming techniques to help a family grow a lot more crops. This means regular meals, a more varied diet and the chance to earn a better income to pay for things like school fees.
It’s amazing what a trip to the loo can do – it can even help a family grow more food thanks to some innovative Oxfam technology. An example of someone who benefits is Ida Swen who lives on the outskirts of Monrovia, Liberia, with her seven children. Next to her home is a thriving garden growing cassava, corn and ochre. Right now, it produces enough to help supplement her family’s diet. But yields from their kitchen garden will be potentially far bigger, all thanks to their Oxfam ‘bio-fill’ toilet. This specially designed loo, not only helps keep the family healthier, but it houses native ‘African night crawler’ worms, which feed on poo. The bi-product of this process can then be used as compost that will help Ida grow her vegetables.
“We had been suffering without a toilet. Now I am very happy and proud to have one. And with this toilet I will definitely be able to grow more food.”
- Ida Swen
