New Ventilated Improved Pits in the village

Due to the delay of funds transfer, the ventilated Improved pits for the villagers who doesn't have the capacity to build the hygienic latrines during the last summer 2014. The latrines are constructed for poor families which don't have the capacity and possibilities to build the latrines themselves. 

The project aim to improve the hygiene and sanitation conditions for the vulnerable village members especially widows, orphans and other poor families which lack the capacity to build the latrines themselves. The latrines are constructed in partnership with BVDA from UK. the BVDA raise funds for construction of 4 VIP latrines every year and the Rwanda Village Concept Project coordinate the construction activities including selecting the vulnerable families that need the latrines most than others, educating the families about how to improve their hygiene and sanitation conditions in their families and the village in General. 

Starting November 2014, the latriens has been started to be constructed for the selected families which was selected in collaboration with the local leaders and other village members. We expect to improve the knowledge and skills of the beneficiaries and the sanitation conditions improvment of the benefited families and the village members in general. 

More vulnerable families which can't afford to build the latriens are still available and we look forward to receive your support to continue working for public health improvement. According to our data, a latrine that we construct for the villagers can last up to more than 10 years while the normal ones use to last less than 1 year.

Summer activities going on

It is now two months, RVCP volunteers have been volunteering in the hygiene, water and sanitation education sessions. The teaching sessions were being delivered at primary schools and villages that we work with. The teaching sessions focus on the role of hand washing tp prevent low hygiene related disease which might be contracted while eating or touching specific places on our body. 

The education sessions provided also the capacity of the participants to be able to spread the knowledge and skills gained among their colleagues in the village. The water boiling was also one of the main topics because the water for drinking is not clean, so it is very neccessary for everyone to boil water before drinking. 

The team welcome everyone who wish to join for improving his/her skills in hygiene, water and sanitation and in the community health improvement of the underprivileged communities.

We are in the second week of the second trimester for primary school pupils. As planned our volunteers are conducting weekly teaching sessions on hygiene, water and sanitation good practices. The school that we have worked in 2013 has received a partner to build latrines with good hygienic standards by the help of RVCP advocacy. RVCP volunteers in its hygiene program are educating kids from 1st year to 6th year on how to use the latrines in a good way in order to make latrines last longer and prevent diseases which may come from unsafe practices of hand washing. The school administration is always reminded to provide water for hand washing for kids every time they use the latrines. Currently the organization is working on fundraising for water tank construction at school which will benefit both the school and the villagers around Nyanza primary school. We look forward to work with you to make this goal achievable. Do not hesitate to contact us on rwandavcp@gmail.com or rvcp_coordinator@yahoo.com for further information.
