EBPP will launch its first crowdfunding campaign on Monday 26 January 2015. The campaign will run for 40 days with the aim to raise enough funds to help 135 families in Manikaji Asti Hamlet, remote East Bali, build toilet and bathroom facilities.
Each finished toilet and bathroom facility has an Asiatic squat toilet, with an adjacent bak mandi (small water reservoir) for toilet flushing, bathing, laundry, etc. Human waste is flushed away with 0.5-1 litre of water via pipes to a septic tank and soak-away where grey water filters into the granular soil. When funds are raised for each family’s toilet, EBPP will supply 500 concrete blocks, 10 sacks of cement, pipes and the Asiatic WC. Each family will provide their own roof and door to foster community ownership. Each family will work with their neighbours to construct their toilet and bathroom facility, and EBPP’s expert infrastructure team will oversee the construction process, from material delivery to final completion, with final technical approval from Founder & CEO David J Booth MBE, an experienced civil engineer.
Our project will have an immediate and direct impact on the lives of the 538 people of Manikaji Asti. Toilet construction will begin immediately after all funds for the project are raised and the building schedule will ensure that all toilets are constructed and functional within five months of all funds being raised. Our target for the campaign is US$33,750 (or Rp388,125,000), and with the support of generous donors, we hope to reach our target in 40 days.
