Portable Toilet to Improve Sanitation

We are designing a Portable Toilet so we reduce waste, and improve sanitation. This will help in reducing the bacteria and germs spread throughout Africa. The toilet is a little backpack shaped like a box that has a hole on the top were someone does their business. It falls into a cup and then is filtered and sanitized with gems. There is an air freshener to keep things fresh!

First, we looked up the facts of Ebola and how it spreads. It can spread through bacteria and bodily fluids so we decided to create a portable toilet. We really want to help put a stop to Ebola and so we are trying to prevent it in any possible way!
