In April 2017 three brand new Clivus Multrum composting toilets were installed at Kiabola Beach Primary School located in the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea. This school has about 250 teachers and students and previously they have had to use pit toilets. This has obvious implications on sanitation, the environment and the senses.
When teachers at the school were asked “what is the main concern here at the primary school?” the response came quickly and with certainty – “SANITATION”. Hence the new toilet system which requires no water for flushing and ultimately provides the school with fertiliser for their gardens.
