Kaniga, Gicumbi, Northern Province, Rwanda

Community Description
The Kaniga sector, District of Gicumbi, Northern Province, Republic of Rwanda is a rural area, composed mainly of poor agro-pastoralists and subsistence farmers.

The Mulindi Health Center is the primary intake facility for the sick in the area, serving a population of almost 17,000. The service area includes 3 sectors, 10 cells, and 41 different villages. Because of its proximity to the Uganda border, the center also serves a significant transient population.

Mulindi Health Center Latrine Project - RwandaThe latrines currently in use at the center are beyond capacity, and can no longer accommodate the needs of the expanding patient caseload.

Project Description
This project is to build new pit latrines at the health center.

The latrines will be constructed using local labor and mostly local supplies. A hole 6 meters wide and 4 meters deep will be dug. Then, a building of two rooms will be constructed, one for men and the other for women.

The building itself will be made of mud bricks and stones, with a sheet metal roof. The foundation will be made of cement and stone.

Comments
A health center must provide facilities that comply with the best practices of hygiene espoused by the staff. Since existing facilities are unsanitary, and have become unusable, the replacement of the latrines is crucial to the ongoing delivery of services to the increasing population.
