There is acute shortage of toilets, serious deterioration of the existing ones. Currently girls, boys & teachers are using facilities which are almost full; there is a risk for the girls to be infected. This situation contributes significantly to pupils' absenteeism/dropout from school, Parents are reluctant to send their children, in particular girls to school because pupils will queue for hours, fight to use the very few existing toilets. Small children are not able to wait for long time
The plan is to build ten toilets for 10 public primary schools in Teso Sub region to enhance pupils' learning conditions, increase enrolment, retention, and academic success rate. Construction of ten spaciously ventilated latrines with cement blocks, tiles on the walls and the floor, toilet tissue holders, and sinks and water to wash hands. After the construction, there will be ten toilets in total. The challenge face of new, more/ adequate latrine facilities for boys and girls is solved
Construction of 10 spaciously ventilated latrines with cement blocks, tiles on the walls and the floor, toilet tissue holders, water to wash hands in the 10 schools. This will provide a safe, healthy and conducive learning environment that will increase the enrolment, retention, and academic success rate of boys and girls. The project will therefore effectively contribute to the fight against one of the structural causes of poverty in the community that, in this case, is the low education rate.
