Vital Sanitation Assessments and Improvements

Amani's infrastructure requires constant upkeep. Heavy annual rains and the relentless equatorial suns cause buildings to deteriorate more rapidly than in more temporate climates. Amani's plumbing and restroom facilities, which must function for over fifty individuals day in and day out, require constant attention and maintenance. 

Amani is attempting renovate much of its plumbing system. We will likely launch a miniproject and social media campaign in the spring to finalize these renovations. Updated restroom facilities in and outside the dormitories will ensure that our center is compliant with best practices in sanitation and child health. We also plan to bring on undergraduate student volunteers during the summer to conduct WASH surveys (a tool used by the United Nations to measure successful sanitary practices) both inside the center and in the surrounding communities. This, along with child health assessments focusing on dietary quality and physical development will allow us to quantify our impact on children's health in our area. This can serve ask pilot work for future studies, and foundational information for community health initiatives.
