Clean Water, Education, FROM THE FIELD

This Update Doesn’t Stink

1-Clean-Water-Sept

Through your support, New Dawn School in Kenya has been able to install flush toilets as recommended by the local health department, moving away from open-pit latrines. This is a huge improvement for the students and staff at the school. Pit latrines pose obvious sanitary problems as well as logistical issues with maintenance. We’ve often featured new, clean water solutions like wells and catchment system and it’s easy to forget the great benefits of clean, sanitized water solutions like flush toilets. While the new toilets were being installed, repairs to a freshman class took place, replacing floors, installing walls and adding new desks and chairs. This has made the class more conducive for learning activities than ever before! Students and staff at the school pass along a HUGE thank you, knowing this is only possible through a community giving up the cost of a few mochas a month!
