Latrines help communities prevent the spread of disease.
WFSS’s sanitation program directly addresses the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #6 to ensure access to water and sanitation for all.
WFSS broke ground for the latrine at Zogolona Primary School in January, 2018.
More than 800 students can use the latrine.
The WFSS team continues to work closely with school leadership to monitor the project and ensure it is sustainable.
WFSS plans to implement similar projects at additional schools.
Before WFSS drilled a well and built latrines at Zogolona, children would often miss lessons because they had to walk 30 minutes on average to find drinking water or to relieve themselves in the bush. Now, with access to a latrine, the school day is not interrupted and learning is the main focus!
