Learning Report

Wish for WASH 2016 Learning Report

At the beginning of 2016, the Zambian branch of Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company (LWSC) worked with Wish for WASH (W4W) to retrofit one of the three-hundred Ecological Sanitation (EcoSan) toilets in a Lusaka’s peri-urban compound. A pilot was conducted to test new design of a functional and desirable toilet facility that restored the superstructure of the EcoSan system. This is a comprehensive learning report following this pilot.

Our Journey

Universal access to improved sanitation infrastructure is our #WishforWASH


Our Product

Through lean manufacturing, customer discovery, and empathic design, we have continually iterated our first sanitation relief product - the SafiChoo toilet. Currently in its 2nd iteration, SafiChoo is a modular design intended to improve the user experience for all market players. It functions as a “toolbox of options” allowing users to choose how to go to the bathroom to best meet their needs. The new design is being tested and further iterated in 2016.



In addition to product development, Wish for WASH seeks to further advocate and educate about human centered design, global sanitation, health equity, and social entrepreneurship by means of consultative projects. Check out some educational resources below that we have either been a part of or just see as important findings, viewpoints and practices related to these topics that we greatly value! These resources are intended to educate, equip, and inspire further positive action!
