Latrine construction update

The aim of the project is to construct 4 latrines of 5 stances pit-latrines with two wash rooms/changing room in each latrine and to provide reliable clean washing water for girls of menstruating age in two schools of Akaikai, Awoja, Telamoti and Aminit Primary Schools in the Soroti district. Also, to reduce the high pupil to latrines ratio and offer separate toilet/pit-latrines for boys and girls; and raising awareness about menstruation to eliminate the stigma of menstruation.

To provide a separate girls’ pit-latrine with washing facilities the four schools, as well as raising awareness, will ensure school attendance of girls during menstruation and increase the number of girls with qualifications.

Community meeting resolution on the school

After SCOEN meeting with the community chaired by the Senior Account Assistant the meeting resolved that the parents contribute locally available materials i.e. bricks, rock and marvels, sand and SCOEN provides transport cost and other materials with skilled labour.

The block construction will surely be the first permanent block in school compound, the block will accommodate 4 classrooms.

The District and Sub county will provide technical support like monitoring and supervision from the district engineer office.

The fund collected through this crowdfunding has been held in a community account unit

Through very generous donations through GlobalGiving we shall be able to begin theconstruction of the classroom block - the Latrine construction was started yet to be complmented. The floods in the place have halted construction when the land dries we shall surely resume the construction and laying of the foundation of the classroom block

Help us to help make the poorest of the poor to the best educated of all!!! We are all making the difference between lives in the wicked wheel of poverty - and the glorious freedom of choice for children who would never be able to make choices without a solid basis of health, education, and welfare!!!

Your donations - large or small - are so very appreciated.

Thank you  so much, have a d a blessed holiday season filled with love, light, friends, and family!
