WaterAid is a leading non-government organisation that provides water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services to the poor and marginalised people, and influences the government and development partners to be more responsive and pro-poor. WaterAid Bangladesh (WAB) employs participatory approaches for promotion of demand-driven service provision that creates access to WASH based on its global principle of equity, inclusion and rights.

WaterAid Bangladesh is working to improve people’s awareness and information on public sanitation. WaterAid has been supporting the development of a mobile app to locate public toilets in Dhaka. The app enables users to locate public toilets nearest to them in Dhaka, and includes information on features and facilities, women-friendliness, fees, etc. 

Now WaterAid is looking to develop and implement a wider toilet tracking information management system that will collect and make available information of all toilets along the major national highways of Bangladesh. Developing such an app would allow millions of people to benefit from knowledge of the closest public toilet rather than going in the open or not relieving themselves for hours at a time, which is currently the norm.
