Sanitation and the urgency to maintain clean drinking water in the waterholes are key problems affecting the health and survival of everyone in these tribes. Without pit toilets, people have no choice but to use the bushes that surround their groups of huts called manyattas. During the rainy season, the rain waters wash through the bushes near the manyattas and pollute the water-holes used for drinking water. For many years Tribal Advancement has been providing materials to construct pit toilets for each grouping of manyattas. These pit toilets are all hand built by the tribal men and have been very successful in ensuring the tribes have clean drinking water!
