In the rural area of Bingerville in the Ivory Coast, an estimated 87,000 children under the age of five die from preventable diseases, such as malaria, diarrhoea, and respiratory infections. Along with that, only 57 % of families have access to adequate sanitation facilities. In an effort to change these statistics, WONDER has joined the Ilomba Centre, which hosts various health programs to educate local citizens about proper sanitation mechanisms.
Illomba also trains women to become employees in sanitation, hospitality, and healthcare fields. Since 2002, the Ilomba Centre has treated on average 3,500 people per year, while also providing educational programs for women in regards to health and sanitation. With the training Ilomba provides, about 50 women a year are able to get jobs in healthcare and hospitality. The services Illomba provides not only helps the sanitation problems in the Ivory Coast, but promotes women’s ability to receive and maintain a steady job.
