Khogue is a small Sahelian community that is home to a thriving elementary school. The school’s recent efforts to develop a garden as well as functioning bathroom facilities have been thwarted due to its lack of containment. Foraging goats have wreaked havoc on the school’s limited vegetation and its bathrooms have fallen into disarray, the result of unmonitored community-wide use. This project proposes the construction of a wall to surround the school grounds as well as gates to control access to the site, providing security to the students and the grounds.
Progress Update: 2/16/2017
Construction is halfway complete. The community has mobilized around the project and hopes to complete it within a few months!
