Lack of good toilets and hygiene education is a big problem in Tanzania. Through this project, we expected to expand intervention in support of education by providing better learning conditions for pupils in the targeted region by installing ventilated pit latrines. Making sanitation accessible is not only critical to saving lives, but also the precious time and money the victims spend in trying to recover from such illness. One of the latrines at the school fell a few years ago and even sometimes students and teachers are forced to defecate in nature. This degrading situation also gives rise to several diseases such as poliomyelitis, diarrhea and urinary tract infections. With this latrine construction project, they aim to go further in the approach to access to education, in good conditions of schooling, especially since the local demand is strong and favorable to the implementation of this project.
