During our visit to the school in early 2015, it turned out that the school no longer had toilets for the students: the latrine pits were full, they could no longer be used – and that for a long time. (One wonders as Europeans, where and how the children probably did their emergency.) Unfortunately the pits could not – as initially planned – be extended, because in the ground beside the toilets large rocks were found, which cannot be processed with simple devices. We decided to build new toilets: one for the girls and one for the boys.

Overview of the individual project steps:

  • Construction of a toilet facility for boys in 2016
  • New construction of a toilet facility for girls in 2016
  • Official opening and handover to the government as operator of the school on July 29, 2016
