1,400 household toilets provided under GAMA/GKMA Sanitation Project

Engineer George Asiedu, the Coordinator of Greater Accra Metropolitan Area and Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area GAMA/GKMA Sanitation Project has stated that the project currently provides about 1,400 household Toilets monthly in its areas of operations in Accra and Kumasi.

The project, he said, is geared towards the achievement of universal access to Sanitation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 6 by 2030.

According to him, achieving the SDG 6 is possible should the GAMA Sanitation Project continue with the momentum and urged the government to support them to ensure that they quickly embark on the programme nationwide to ensure that Ghanaians have universal access to sanitation as a country.

Ing. Asiedu was speaking at the Professorial Inaugural Lecture on the topic: “Universal Access to Water and Sanitation Services: A myth or Reality” at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

According to him, universal access to sanitation is possible through the GAMA Project, which has over the years shown the way that it’s possible to increase access to sanitation and household toilets.

He is of the view that if the project gets a financing support from the government, over the next six years we would be able to do that as a country for everybody to realize that achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6 is not a Myth but Reality.

Ing. Asiedu also appealed to the government to ensure that there is adequate financing to support their vision and what they have been doing over the years.

He stressed that, GAMA Sanitation Project is on the path to ensure that they increase access to sanitation and water.

He entreated residents in Accra and Kumasi without household Toilets to visit the various Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) and seek for the GAMA/GAMA Sanitation Project to assist them with affordable household toilets between GH¢700.00 to GH¢1,200.00.
