Toilet maintenance is a key predictor of consistent use. SHRI uses the revenue earned from the sale of safe drinking water to offset the costs of its facilities and keep them well-maintained. 

Breaking it Down

Maintenance Cost

$900 per month

This pays for:

  • The salaries of eight workers who keep the facility clean and track toilet usage

  • Cleaning supplies

  • Extra diesel for the generator to supplement energy needs 

Revenue from Facilities

$900 per month

With approximately 250 consistent water customers every month, SHRI is able to raise the $900 necessary to cover operating costs of its facilities

The Bottom Line


Using revenue from its water sales, SHRI is able to consistently offset the costs of maintaining its facilities, making them completely self-sustaining
