Composting Latrines

In October of 2012, the construction of two composting latrines at the GGM clinic site in Murray Town began.  An amputee with construction experience acted as foreman and 4 high school students volunteered their time on the project. 

The original intent was to build the composting latrines at the clinic compound and use it as a teaching tool for the community.  However there was an unexpected development.  Greatest Goal Ministry was given a
new clinic site and clinic building by the office of the First Lady of Sierra Leone in Lakka just outside the capital of Freetown. The previous clinic was closed and moved to the new building delaying completion of the project. 

The 300.00 USD  raised to date and was used to build the framed concrete covers for 4 latrines.  The new plan is to build the latrines at an all-girls school in Freetown.  The head matron is very interested in the project and the school is in great need of additional toilets. 

The structure to enclose the latrines will be made of chicken wire and paper filled plastic bottles. The gathering of those bottles is continuing and many children have picked up litter from around their neighborhoods and stuffing bottles to assist with the project. 

Completion of the project will take place once the additional funds are raised.  Thank you for your assistance in this endeavor.
