Build Latrines in Rural Haiti

Feb 22, 2012

Latrines are up and running!

The Partnership for Change in Ravin Olyann (ACHVRO), a community organization in Gwomòn, Haiti just opened a sugarcane mill in their community.  As part of the project initiative, latrines were built in the mill.  These latrines are especially exciting in that these are the only latrines available in the community.  Without latrines available, community members typically use open fields for bathroom facilities- meaning contraction of waterborne illnesses is incredibly common. These latrines, which have doors allowing for privacy and proper ventilation are providing important sanitation and management of human waste in an area where cholera has been a constant concern.  Members of ACHVRO now have access to these latrines and running water which are providing an important step towards more comprehensive clean water and sanitation management in rural Haiti.
