Santi and his cousins have been enjoying the process of their bathroom being built.
The water container and solar heater are ready.
On the inside, the bathrooms are finished: one area for the toilet and one area for the sink and shower. That is how they have always divided the functions and, as a multi family bathroom, we think it is more useful that way.
Next week the doors and windows will arrive.
The final installation of the biodigestor will take place on Monday. The clean water, at the end of the process, will go to the family’s avocado orchard. The avocado has become an important income for the Lopez family.
Check the pictures so you can enjoy the process with us.
We began the building process of Santi’s bathroom on February 1st with the Global Giving campaign donations.
The bathroom will be divided into two separate spaces. One for cleaning purposes (shower and sink) and the other for sanitary purposes (wc). Since it will be shared by several family members, it is the best way to take full advantage of the services.
The biodigestor is ready to be installed. The clear water coming after all the cleaning process will el used to water the avocado orchard the Lopez family has.
We have already bought the solar panel for water heating. The high altitude is perfect for solar energy.
All the family has helped during the process. Specially the children. They are very enthusiastic and looking forward to the bathroom completion that is going to change their lives.
