Challenge

Mang'ula Primary School in rural Kilombero, Tanzania provides education to over 600 students. Currently, there are only 6 toilets: 3 for girls, and 3 for boys. This ratio is not enough to maintain sanitary conditions, with only 1 toilet per 100 students. The lack of sanitary toilet facilities causes the spread of diseases such as cholera and dysentery. On top of this, students are reluctant to attend school due to a lack of sanitary facilities. More toilets will improve health and attendance.

Solution

We will construct 4 new toilets, 2 more for boys and 2 more for girls. This will improve the ratio from 1 toilet per 100 students to 1 toilet per 60 students. More toilet facilities make maintaining sanitary conditions easier, increasing school attendance and reducing the spread of disease.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide sanitary toilet facilities for 600 students, improving their general health, as well as their school attendance. Improved health and attendance will give students a better chance to rise out of poverty through education.
