Live Clean is an award winning social enterprise that constructs and operates modern toilets and showers, using customised, modular cargo containers.
Our mission is to "Provide access to clean, affordable sanitation and safe water to 100 percent of the population in both urban and rural areas of Zambia."
Live Clean strives to significantly improve the existing conditions of public sanitation in urban and peri-urban Zambia and to improve the environmental impact of sanitation with a closed loop strategy.
The containers are designed to convert solid waste from the toilets into bio-fuel and fertiliser. Water used in showers and basins will be recycled for use in the toilets and any rain water harvested will be made available to residents as a source of fresh drinking and cooking water.
The use of properly maintained and designed toilets will also reduce the risk of contamination and the spread of water-borne diseases such as cholera.
Another important objective of the Live Clean project is to further the empowerment of women in Zambia. By providing modern sanitation facilities, women are offered an easier and cleaner alternative to pit latrines and makeshift holes. The toilets are secure and the sites are fenced and guarded to provide a safe environment. We also offer sanitary pads at minimal cost.
Live Clean is developed in partnership with the UK Department for International Development and Kukula Seed and is supported by Innovations Against Poverty.
