Conclusion of School Toilet Construction Project – Tanzania

Conclusion of School Toilet Construction Project – TanzaniaThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Jessica Meigel. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

This project was to provide latrines for use by the students at the Mahulu Primary school in Kitula Village, Tanzania.

Jessica reports:

The project battled through delays in raising the funds, the onset of bad weather, inaccuracies in the budget process, and increasing material costs. However the effort ultimately accrued to the direct benefit of 328 students and teachers, and added facilities of use to the entire village.

Project funds paid for lumber, rocks, sand, gravel, frames, and doors.

The community contribution to the project, amounting to 43%, included funds for bricks, and labor for water transport, digging, and loading.

The school sold a part of its tree forest to cover remaining expenses to complete the project.

We wish to thank Jessica for completing this project, and again extend our gratitude to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding.
