In 2010 the East Bali Poverty Project facilitated the construction of toilet and bathroom facilities in Cegi hamlet, remote East Bali.
At the end of 2014 we went to ask I Ketut Karya how his toilet and bathroom facility had improved his family’s life.
“Before we had a toilet we defecated in the garden, about 50 metres from our house. Every time we had to go we were scared of the snakes. It was very dirty, and smelt a lot. We couldn’t use the same place twice because of the smell.
“Now my children can go directly to the toilet linked to our house. We can bathe twice a day in private, unlike before when sometimes we wouldn’t wash for many days.
“Since we’ve had the bathroom my children are clean, and much healthier. I hope people can help other families with projects like this”.
