The MSABI sanitation team are currently training 3 masons in installing a Urine Diverting Dehydrating Toilet (UDDT) at Kiberege village market as part of the sanitation private sector development. The toilet will have 2 rooms with dual purpose latrine-shower and 4 vaults underneath.
Due to the rapid increase in business activities, this small market accommodates a big number of traders as well as local residences.

The area public health officer has put restrictions on constructing individual latrines in these households as it is designated as a business area. As a result, the traders residing in the area have to walk a distance of 300m to access the nearest latrine at a nearby dispensary. The new facility will be a shared facility used by the 15 house holds belonging to the traders around the market area and their customers.
