Sheq i Madh School Bathroom and Water Project - AlbaniaLocation
Sheq i Madh School, Fier, Albania

Community Description
Sheq i Madh is a 9 year (nente vjecare)  school with 250 students and 15 teachers in the region of Fier. It is one of the smaller local schools

Problem Addressed
The bathrooms need refurbishment, and to have running water.  The general sanitation situation at the school is thoroughly inadequate.

There are four student toilets, and one for the teachers, but all need rebuilding and connecting to running water with a new deposit in the roof to provide 24 hour supply.

Project Description
This project will provide 5 new turkish toilets, 4 hand basins (one already exists), and the plumbing for running water to them. In addition, a new water storage container on the roof, and an associated water pump will be installed to provide a continuous source of water.

Monitoring and Maintenance
Fier Bashkia (Municipality) will be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the facilities.

This project is part of the LET GIRLS LEARN program sponsored by FLOTUS Michelle Obama.  It is intended to have a positive effect in keeping girls in school after they reach adolescence.  Lack of clean facilities is a leading cause of women dropping out of school. Water Charity is proud to have sponsored the very first LGL project, and continues to be a leading contributor to the program, as evidenced by projects like this one.

As an LGL project, this falls under our 100 Water Projects Program – Albania as well as our larger Let Girls Learn Initiative – Worldwide.
