You are invited to spend 86 seconds with TfP and our NGO partner Amazon Promise installing Crapper composting toilets in the remote Peruvian Amazon village of Nuevo Jerusalen.
Enjoy another in-country Crapper installation video (in Spanish) produced by one of our NGO partners – Fundacion Haciendas del Mundo Maya (FHMM).
Watch Popular Science interview Jason Kass at NYC’s 2015 Maker Faire:
The average in-country material cost to build a locally made, family-scale composting toilet with urinals is $200.
Approximate cost to hire TfP to conduct an in-country pilot composting toilet installation project:
In Latin America: $7,500, inclusive, to train NGO staff, provide capacity building to community members and construct & install 5 composting toilets with urinals using local materials and labor.
In Africa or Asia: $10,000, inclusive, to train NGO staff, provide capacity building to community members and construct & install 5 composting toilets with urinals using local materials and labor.

Introducing Toilets for People
TfP’s Indiegogo Campaign Video
2.5 billion people worldwide lack access to improved sanitation. 1 billion still practice open defecation. When poop mixes with drinking water supplies and people drink or bath in that water they get sick – leading to the death of one child under 5 years old every minute from preventable diseases like cholera and severe diarrhea.
We’re dedicated to bringing sanitation solutions that last to the developing world, particularly to flood-prone communities. By partnering with in-country NGOs, we ensure our solutions are technologically appropriate, take local toilet preferences into account, are resilient, effective, elegant, and affordable.
