On 12th October, 2022, a mass sensitization event was held at Suame Magazine, with the goal of creating demand for the patronage of the bio digester toilet, as part of the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area (GKMA) Sanitation and Water Project (SWP). The event brought together representatives from seven Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) who were also constructing bio digester toilets under the project.

To ensure maximum outreach, the assemblies divided themselves and educated the people in Suame Magazine and its surroundings. Participants from Suame included Honourable Assembly members, Environmental Health Staff, and the Project Coordination Unit (PCU) from GAMA.

The event was held in front of the Suame Post Office, and it aimed to sensitize the public on the benefits of using the biodigester toilet over the traditional pit latrine. The attendees were educated on the ecological and health advantages of using the biodigester toilet, including the prevention of groundwater contamination.

Overall, the event was successful in creating demand for the patronage of the biodigester toilet. It provided an opportunity for the MMDAs to engage with the public, answer questions, and clarify any misconceptions. The mass sensitization event was an essential step in achieving the goal of improving sanitation and reducing open defecation in the Municipality.
