Business Tycoon Shows Support Through Bio-Toilets
The charitable institution founded by renowned business tycoon, Bill Gates, was reported to have donated one million US dollars (US$1,000,000) to the inventors of bio-toilets.
Biofilcom, the company behind the new trend in toilets, were given the big amount of money in order for production to increase and speed up. In addition to this, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hoped that the wide array of bio-toilets would provide Ghanaians the capability of buying cheaper lavatories for their homes.
According to the chief inventor, Mechanical Engr. Kwaku Anno, Biofil was assigned the responsibility of helping Ghana to achieve the MDG or Millennium Development Goals in terms of sanitation. He added, “The goal of Biofil is to get a toilet in every Ghanaian home, workplace and school, as the issue of sanitation cuts across all segments of society.”
