Broken Latrines at Primary School

Broken Latrines at Primary School
Where latrines do exist they are often of poor quality and only have one block that boys and girls share. Existing structures have wooden bases, suffering subsidence with potentially catastrophic implications for a child trapped inside. When girls reach a certain age they need greater privacy and will often stay away from or drop out of school completely if separate and secure bathroom facilities are not available.

Student Drinks Clean Water

Student Drinks Clean Water
Roof catchment systems and rainwater harvesting tanks provide a source of clean water not only for drinking but also for cleaning and hand washing. A readily available source of clean water on school campuses also ensures children more time to study instead of collecting water and will help prevent the contraction of water borne diseases that keep them away from classes.
