Wereber Baptist Children’s Home (Latrines)

Project Location: Iylowa, Tororo, Uganda

Project Completed: November 2017

People Served: People served with sanitation: 65

The Problem

These children have been taken in by mama Okoth who has a big heart for the little ones. Latrines were filling up and these kids would have no place to go. With a new water source especially, and kids living on site, they have to have a safe place to go.

The Solution

John Huff called us to design, implement and monitor this project. We designed a high quality drainable latrine with ‘safe’ spaces and a new design for kids. There is extra protection with double doors to allow privacy and locking of these overnight to prevent misuse by outsiders.

We innovated during the construction of these latrines – read our blog post ‘No One Should Be Scared to Poop’ to learn more!
