Ssango Primary School (Sanitation)

Project Location: Mpigi, Uganda

People Served: 500 students, 10 staff

Project Funding Needed: Phase 1: $13,000 Latrines for students Phase 2: $9,000 Washing block for girls and a latrine block for teachers

The Problem

Already beneficiaries of 40,000 liters of rainwater harvesting, but in dire need of latrines. At Ssango, there is a small population of special needs children as well who need safer access to the toilet. By building two latrine blocks (10-stances) with handicapped accessibility and handwashing facilities, hygiene, sanitation and health will be changed forever.

The Solution

Drink Local Drink Tap is committed to ensuring ALL children have access to clean water and sanitation in Uganda. Our drainable, long-lasting VIP latrines have child-friendly innovations and quality work and materials that can withstand the harsh sun and conditions of Uganda.

Ssango Primary School has been a Drink Local Drink Tap partner since 2013.
