Sanitation is the hygienic means of promoting health through prevention of human contact with the hazards of wastes. Hazards can be either physical, microbiological, biological or chemical agents of disease. Wastes that can cause health problems are human and animal feces, solid wastes, domestic wastewater (sewage), industrial wastes, and agricultural wastes. Hygienic means of prevention can be by using engineering solutions (e.g. sewerage), simple technologies (e.g. latrines, septic tanks), or even by personal hygiene practices (e.g. simple hand washing with soap).
A toilet is a plumbing fixture primarily intended for the disposal of human excreta: urine and fecal matter. Additionally, vomit and menstrual waste are sometimes disposed of in toilets in Western societies.
Through conducting a survey in Sitio Proper, it would be easier for us to know the health and sanitations that is happening in our community, specifically, in toilets.
We choose to have a project based learning about toilets because we can relate this in our community. As we see, toilets our very important especially in communities because we can observe proper health sanitations and hygiene's.
This is for our own protection ,too. Also, To avoid diseases that can lead to death. Let must protect humankind.
As a student ,we want our community to be aware of all of these things. We want to observe the importance of proper health sanitation in every barangay. We also want to keep the community clean to avoid smell disturbances that are bad and lead different hazards in our health.
To our Barangay Officials , as you see in our public awareness campaign, the problem about no toilets only brought a danger in our community. Let us say for instance, after excreting human waste such as urine and feces, do people wash their hands? Out of 10 people I can say that only 4 of them wash their hands and observe proper health sanitation. Why? Because as we conducted our survey in Sitio Proper , 60 percent have no toilets, meaning, these people were usually doing an improper action. They may bring bacteria causing germs that may result cholera.
