The children could hardly wait to inspect their new clean toilets on September 11, 2018 the long awaited “toilets opening day”! They were not only fascinated by the nice friendly colours on the walls of their sanitation facility prestine environment but also by the presence of water taps with running water in them.
With the help of well wishers, Hand of Progress e.V. has built a total of 22 toilets with a urinal for boys and a bathroom for girls, a septic tank and dug a water borehole to enable hand washing and general hygiene for the 700 children of Mukuyu Primary school. However, water shortage has forced us to dig a second borehole which is in the process of completion. We also intend to take advantage of the future rainy seasons by collecting rain water. We thank you for your continued support. The next school is waiting, a boarding school with about 450 girls, that is also in desperate need for safer hygienic toilets.
