Sanitation for Ndiveni School

Year: 2016
Country: Tanzania

Project Description

Ndiveni Primary School is home to 250 students. The school lacks access to running water and its kitchen facilities are not developed, forcing students to cook their lunches over open flame on the grounds in the common area. This creates an elevated risk of communicable disease and the contamination of food and water. In addition, the faculty restroom is near collapse, creating further strain on the remaining available hygiene and sanitation facilities. This project calls for the development of a water supply system, enclosing the school’s kitchen facilities, and the renovation of the damaged faculty restroom. This will allow the school to reduce its vulnerability to infectious diseases.
