Getting to know our junior customers

The team at Warje decided to take some time and talk to some of our junior customers and find out from them about their ideal toilet. We took some time to sit down with them and instead of telling us what they would like at the community toilet, they decided to show us through organizing a drawing competition among themselves.And thus for a couple of hours, armed with a sheet of paper and colored pencils the competition was on to test the one with the most creativity, originality and…See More

Sanitary Napkin Disposal - The Underlying Issue

As 3S Shramik, we feel that slum sanitation does not only mean providing toilets where there is scarcity of facilities , rampant cases of open defecation or even in the maintenance of existing toilets through providing cleaning services but in achieving total sanitation in all areas of the lives of the people living in slums or informal settlements.Time and time again we insist that education is an important tool that should be used hand in hand with any intervention being done throughout the…See More

Quality Services for the Base Of the Pyramid

Whenever it comes to providing any services or facilities to the slums, most ideas tend to run towards providing low or substandard products on the basis that people at the base of the pyramid cannot afford any better and thus in some way do not deserve it. Most products that are developed for this segment are often inferior or low budget and sometimes do not satisfy the needs of the people they are trying to serve.However, quality does not have to be synonymous to expensive and we are trying…See More

Shift in handling community/shared toilets in slums

One of the most common problems that we have encountered in most slums/ informal settlements that, we visited, is the lack of adequate space available. This greatly hinders putting up of new infrastructure such as individual toilets because there is simply not enough room for them.That has led to the construction of community toilets by the government. Water and electricity is free at these toilets. But the challenge remains in maintenance of the toilets. The foremost cause  is that in most…See More
