Challenge

Bethel Academy is prioritized as it is a community school and has increased in size, with no increase in funds or facilities. Currently 190 children are sharing 4 bathrooms and queuing during their breaks to use the very basic toilets. They also have a student with physical disabilities, who is not able to use the current toilet, due to the size of the wheelchair and instead the teachers are having to use diapers.

Solution

We are currently fundraising for a bathroom for all the children at Bethel Academy, as well as for aesthetically uplifting the schools appearance with a coat of paint to make the school a more attractive and engaging place of learning. This project will significantly impact the children, with increased learning and playtime, uninterrupted by queuing to use the limited bathrooms.

Long-Term Impact

There will be an increase in sanitation and hygiene which seeks to increase basic human dignity, access to the contrary, decrease absenteeism. These renovations will also help the school meet the required standards by Ministry of Education to provide improved sanitation and efficiency.
