Robert Quansah is the managing director of Daakyebi, a construction company in Accra, Ghana.

Through the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area Sanitation and Water Project (GAMA), Robert and his team received training and support that is enabling them to build more and better toilets in their community, thereby contributing to mitigating the effects of the sanitation problem in Ghana. Robert was able to hire more people and expand his business.

On World Toilet Day, we raise awareness of the value of safe sanitation for all. We can all recognize the importance of toilets for dignity, health, and safety. But less well known is how valuable they can be for mitigating climate change and promoting sustainable development.
