Accessing communal latrines and toilets is one of the major dangers for women in urban slums. This idea proposes illuminating the route to the communal bathrooms using photo-luminescent paint. [Summary by the Amplify Team]

Hi Ashwin, the paint was created specially by Studio Roosegaarde and their architects (i.e. it is not commercially available), please contact them directly. https://www.studioroosegaarde.net/contact/ Good luck!

Hello! This is a hypothetical, and unfortunately as we weren't selected for funding we won't be moving forward (we are only students!). :) Our estimated timeline was visualised above, but naturally it's just an estimate. Also, as we mentioned, the planning stage and the painting stage was to involve the community as a whole, while empowering women in the decision-making process. Thanks for your interest.
