In 2016, three toilet facilities were built on the campus: one for girls ‘dormitories, one for boys’ dormitories, and one for classrooms, cafeterias and science laboratories. The buildings at the dormitories also have cabins for washing and showering. In addition to the toilets, underground fermenters were built, where the excrements are caught and fermented thus producing the gas methane, which is ideal for cooking. It is passed from the fermenters in underground pipes to the school kitchen and used for cooking in special large pots. The residence time of the excrements is long, so that disease germs or worm eggs are killed. The outlet, a clear, yellowish and odorless liquid, is piped to a container standing by the school garden and used for fertilization and irrigation. for vegetables and other foods which students grow throughout the year, according to the tradition of the country.
Overview of the individual project steps:

- Construction of three fermenters, connection to the toilets, pipeline for the outlet from the fermenters to the storage container at the school garden, installation of the gas pipes, installation of the cooking stoves in 2016 (Futura Foundation)
- Official opening and handover to the government as operator of the school on October 20, 2016
