Greetings and Happy New Week!
Wow Mom has been working towards Inclusion of children in toilet matters since 2019. We are transforming the city one baby changing station at a time!
We are thrilled to announce our newest addition of a Baby Changing station in Nairobi CBD! This is the first baby changing station in a public toilet in Nairobi. The Baby Changing Station is located in OTC public toilet which is located along Race Course road next to Oil Libya petrol station, opposite Equity bank.
WHY THE PUBLIC TOILET AT OTC?
OTC public toilet is managed by Central Hakika Youth Group and it is one of the cleanest and busiest public toilets in Nairobi that serves thousands of people per day. Located near 3 major bus terminals, the toilet is open 24 hours a day and serves not only the daily users working around the toilet but also commuters and long distance travelers. What a joy to have a clean and dignified place to change your baby before boarding a matatu?
Before the installation of the baby changing station, caregivers were changing their babies on the sink counters top that was lined with a canvas paper. As a result, the taps were not usable and people had to wash their hands on the washing areas designated outside the toilet. In most cases, the canvas was cold and wet and hence not comfortable and convenient for changing a baby. Now, this will be a thing of the past and we are happy to see mothers enjoying the baby changing station.
The newly installed baby station has been received with a lot of enthusiasm from the public toilet operators as they have experienced first hand the challenges that caregivers experienced while changing their babies within their premises. We have also provided signage to notify the caregivers of the presence of baby changing station within the toilet.
The UN General Assembly Resolution 70/169 (2015), recognizes that the human right to sanitation entitles everyone, without discrimination, to have physical and affordable access to sanitation, in all spheres of life, that is safe, hygienic, secure, socially and culturally acceptable and that provides privacy and ensures dignity.
We believe that children deserve dignity and they need to be provided with adequate sanitation facilities that are safe, hygienic, secure, socially and culturally acceptable. We intend to do this by installing at least one baby changing unit in 21 public toilets in Nairobi CBD.
