Conclusion of Sanitary Bathrooms Project – Paraguay
This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Michelle Pfister. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.
Water Charity participated in this project to provide sanitary bathrooms for 21 families, or 120 people.
Michelle reports: The pictures below show typical finished bathrooms.
Project funds were used to purchase the materials and pay for professional labor for the construction of the bathroom structures and the installation of the fixtures.
The participants learned many skills, including project design and management, community organization, planning, administrative and financial practices, understanding of governmental and NGO processes, improved hygiene and sanitation habits, and construction techniques.
Since the completion of the bathroom project, families have reported fewer parasite-related illnesses. This project will benefit the people of the community for many years to come.
We again wish to thank Six Senses Resorts & Spas for providing the funding for the Water Charity participation in this project.
