I am a volunteer Public Health Nutritionist working in the highlands of Papua New Guinea with PNG Foundation at http://www.pngfoundation.org.au/ I have been doing work in the area of nutrition, safe water, sanitation and hygiene. To improve sanitation, we are aiming to build 6 PIT latrines for a primary school which currently doesn't have any toilets and no access to safe water. 

Question: does anybody know where I can obtain 'safe toilet pans' (SATO https://www.sato.lixil.com/) or similar toilet pans in Asia-Pacific? Information received from the company indicate I can only order them in bulk (container) from India. Delivery address can be either Papua new Guinea or Australia. Many thanks.

A whole container will cost your organization a fortune. However, it would be cheaper in the long run if you have plans to scale up SATO installation to more communities in future. I am of the opinion that a wholesaler (rather than the manufacturer) may be able to send you a box of SATOs via flight, depending on whether they are interested on overseas markets. I am not sure why Lixil in India has not established distributors to sell their marchandize in small quantities, but they do so here in Kenya.
