Pit Latrine design for accessibility?

Mr Daniel Feeley

Hi My adopted daughter is from Uganda and while she was in the UK she has collected money to help build pit latrines for use by pupils with physical disabilities in special schools in Uganda. I have researched your pages and find them very informative but we need help with developing the designs for use by those with a variety of physical disabilities. We would be grateful if you could help or give us any contacts that might be able to help.

Yours Danny
