Nepal: No toilet, no job

Staff of some organizations in Dolpa [Karnali Zone, western Nepal] will lose their job if they do not construct a toilet in their house by the end of this fiscal year in mid-July 2009.

This follows a request by the District Drinking Water Office to all offices, schools and organizations to construct toilets to make the district an open defecation free zone.

Fewer than 12 percent of the population in Dolpa use a toilet.
