Eight million don't have access to a toilet in Kenya. Sanergy, a Global Poverty Project funded company, is helping with a simple and innovative idea: franchising toilets. Sanergy's toilets, known as Fresh Life Toilets, are sold to entrepreneurs who have demonstrated a community need. To make a profit, Fresh Life operators charge users a small fee, usually between four to eight cents, which allows them to make respectable incomes (around $1,000/toilet annually) and help pay for maintenance and cleanliness. The Fresh Life method has created more than 400 jobs in Kenya, giving operators a chance to work their way out of poverty while helping their communities.
