The donation took place on 31st March 2021 in presence of the SATO Rwanda and the school’s management.
Rubaduka Mathias, heading the Anglican Church in Gahanga parish said that SATO Rwanda has helped the school to maintain hygiene and prevent poor sanitation related diseases.
“The school’s hygiene has improved since we received the self-sealing toilets. Unlike other toilets, there are no flies inside and children use them easily. They don’t smell bad because they are automatically sealed or unsealed when necessary. Our special thanks go to SATO Rwanda management for the support,” he said.
The Managing Director of SATO Rwanda, Ntaganira Cyrus has said that the company’s toilets are unique in a way that they don’t require much water while cleaning them.
“SATO toilets are made of plastics. They have uniqueness of a trap door that automatically opens and closes itself. They are particularly self-sealed or unsealed after use. Among others, these toilets allow immediate flow of disposed human waste and do not require much water while cleaning that one cup is enough,” he said.
Ntaganira said they have chosen to donate these toilets to help the school improve hygiene and use standard facilities.
“Existing toilets attracted flies because they were not sealed. This would facilitate the transmission of diseases like diarrhea and verminosis,” he noted.
Among others, Ntaganira said the toilets are a solution to parents worried that their children might fall in toilets because they have tiny holes.
In a bid to support existing COVID-19 preventive measures, the company also donated two water taps known as ’SATO tap’ that use small quantities of water.
SATO toilets are available in hardware shops and wholesalers can resupply from Ecomem.co.Ltd Gisozi Kigali
