The Katulumba school in Siavonga lacks the minimal standard for teaching: three classrooms and eight latrins for more than 500 children. Despite the dedication of the teachers and the efforts of the parents, the education doesn't reach a decent standard and the lack of basic hygiene put the children’s health at risk every day.
Thanks to your generosity, this summer we could built 2 toilets (one for boys, and one for girls), as you can see on the pictures. In the next few weeks they will start digging for the septic tank, and sanitary wares will also be installed. By the next report the pupils and teachers of the school will be able to use the new toilets! The decision to build toilets instead of latrins (as in the project), was taken together with the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and the Education Office (local branch of the Ministry of Education), upon this latter's suggestion. In fact, as the school has a borehole and a 5000Lt tank, having flush toilets reduces drastically the risk of epidemies and diseases.
And this is just the beginning, we are planning to build 16 more toilets, 4 new classrooms and new staff houses!

Together, we can change the life of the Katulumba pupils and teachers.
