Welcome to Building Blocks Foundation
- An estimated 2.6 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation globally.
- In Africa, 115 people die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation, poor hygiene and contaminated water.
Building Blocks is a Peoples driven initiative, devoted at enhancing both tangible and intangible growth. Our mission is to enhance a sense of ownership and responsibility. This is achieved through a process in which residents in a specific area are expected to facilitate in building their own toilets, this includes contribution of a quoted amount by each member of the community and human capital for the construction of the toilets. Moreover, through our workshops we encourage will-power, independence and enhance community potential.
