Funds are required
The aim of the project is to construct 10 latrines of 5 stances pit-latrines with two wash rooms/changing room in each latrine and to provide reliable clean washing water for girls of menstruating age in 10 public primary schools in Bukedea and Soroti districts. Also, to reduce the high pupil to latrines ratio and offer separate toilet/pit-latrines for boys and girls; and raising awareness about menstruation to eliminate the stigma of menstruation.
To provide a separate girls’ pit-latrine with washing facilities the four schools, as well as raising awareness, will ensure school attendance of girls during menstruation and increase the number of girls with qualifications.
