Ethiolo College Latrine Project - Senegal

Ethiolo College Latrine Project - SenegalLocation
Ethiolo, Kedougou, Senegal

Community Description
Ethiolo is a village in southeast Senegal, near the border with Guinea, about 90 km from Kedougou.

This school year, Ethiolo inaugurated a new middle school. However, it lacks latrines or bathrooms. This poses a problem for the students who need to go to the bathroom while school is in session.

Students currently must return to their houses and miss class. Furthermore, some of the students travel more than seven kilometers to go to school, and even that is not an option.

Ethiolo College Latrine Project - SenegalProject Description
This project will build three latrines for Ethiolo's college (middle school). Two of the latrines will be for the female students and one will be for the male students.

The teachers and students have agreed to dig the latrines, and this will be the community's contribution. Each latrine will be dug two meters, and then a local mason will make the caps. Each cap or slab will be made with rebar #6 and #8, wood and cement.

Once the holes are dug, the mason will make the cap of the latrine by first laying the rebar down horizontally and vertically. Then, he will make the wooden framework. Finally, he will pour the cement and finish the cap.

Appropriate Projects funds will pay for the mason's labor and materials, and also transport from Kedougou to Ethiolo.

212 students and nine teachers will benefit from the project.
