Accra, July 2 , GNA – The Janok Foundation, a
Community Based Organisation at Sabon Zongo in Ablekuma Central, has
intensified its awareness campaign for “Toilet at Half Price” being implemented
by the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area – Sanitation and Water Project
(GAMA-SWP).

The World Bank is funding the GAMA-SWP whose
goal is to implement the provision of toilet facilities in homes within the
eleven Metropolitan and Municipal Assemblies in the Greater Accra Region.

The beneficiaries would pay half of the cost
whilst government take care of the other half to prevent open defecation in
communities.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana New
Agency after a float in the Ablekuma Central organised by Madam Jane Amerley
Oku, the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, said her initiative was to
support the GAMA-SWP to promote the “Own a Household Toilet at Half Price.”

She said government and for that matter the
GAMA-SWP are playing their part and that the onus was now on people to buy into
the project to save cost.

Madam Oku told the community members that the
GAMA project would end in 2018 and urged them to take advantage of the
opportunity to own a household latrine to curb open defecation.

She acknowledged the contribution of the
government and its partners, especially the World Bank for their support to the
assemblies to enhance sanitation and environmental hygiene.

She appealed to schools and churches in
various communities to help spread the message on the Toilet at Half Price.
