I am happy to report that despite all the problems associated with the Covid pandemic good progress is being made particularly with improvements to toilets and washing facilities. During the last two months project staff have visited 25 schools in preparation for the work that will be required.
During this same period new water supply systems have been installed in 21 schools which will guarantee a fail safe supply of clean water. New upgraded toilet systems have been installed in 4 schools and a further 18 schools have had existing systems improved. Hand washing basins have been fitted in 20 schools and wheel chair ramps in 2 schools.
This demonstrates that good progress is being made in improving wash facilities and sanitation, but there is still much to do. The educational aspects of this project have still to be fully implemented but because schools have been closed for long periods little progress has been made. This element of the project is very important because it includes boys as well as girls and will help to breakdown the old beliefs that menstruation is unclean and a danger to society. We hope that by the next report we will be able to tell you that progress in this area is now being made.
For now we would like to thank you for all your support and help for this project. We still need your help. If you are able please speak to friends and colleagues about us and ask them to help too. With our best regards.
