The mission of TFP's non-profit arm is to train our partners and craftsmen how to build affordable, long-lasting composting toilets using local materials.
The TFP training program includes instructing our partners and local craftsmen how to build, install and maintain waterless composting toilets using local materials. This locally-driven approach is cost-effective, adaptive to site-specific needs, and scalable.
TFP's composting toilets are suitable for private households, schools, clinics and vulnerable populations (elderly, infirmed and disabled) in refugee camps or displaced persons camps post-disaster. Our toilets are particularly well suited for locations where pit latrines and flush toilets fail - especially flood-prone areas.
See below to explore the communities TFP has worked with since we started in 2010. All on-location toilet construction and training projects are performed by TFP's non-profit foundation.
