Completed Latrine!
Completed Latrine!

Our first LooLove Latrine has been built! It was built using a combination of ecobricks and regular bricks, helping clean up our world a little bit each time a new latrine is built. Wine bottles recycled from the local bar are used for the windows, allowing fresh air in while keeping privacy intact. A good roof was mounted on the sturdy walls, keeping out rain, wind, leaves, and sand. All these details are super important for the families who will receive the gift of a safe and decent latrine and we cannot wait to start building for the 49 families who were selected for 2023.

Thank YOU for allowing us to start this project and to give families the gift of a latrine. For most of us, a bathroom is something that we take for granted, but for people who must use open defecation in woods, behind rocks, or in open fields, this is a game changer. Privacy, safety, and a healthier disposal of human waste are all gifts that the families will never forget. With the additional gift of a solar lamp, the trip to the toilet will no longer be scary for little ones.

Let’s keep sharing the LooLove, folks! Together, we can create communities that are heathier and safer.  Everyone here at the American Foundation for Children with AIDS, and our partners in Africa, thank you for your continued support of this important project.  If you would like to learn even more about this project and others, please contact Tanya Weaver at tweaver@AFCAids.org.
