Location
Oleksandrivka, Snihurivsky Rayon, Mykolaivska Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Oleksandrivka is a small village of 1,000 people located in the southern-central region of Ukraine. Nearby is the scenic Inhulets River, a common place for summer recreational activities like swimming and fishing.

Most residents who live in the village work locally at the school or numerous stores, or with the local farming company. Still others commute to Kherson, an oblast center a mere 25 km away.

140 students attend the Oleksandrivka School.

Oleksandrivka School Bathroom Project - UkraineProblem Addressed
Students use handwashing sinks before eating meals, but the poor quality of the pipes and sinks lessens the quality of the water and also discourages students from using healthy sanitation practices. Currently, only one of the sinks is connected to the water supply, and the other two are not usable.

Project Description
This project is to improve the sanitation facilities at the school by replacing three handwashing sinks.

The sinks will be installed in the bathroom near the school cafeteria, and connections will be made to the water supply system. The bathroom will be upgraded with new flooring, wall tiling, and paint, and soap dispensers will be installed.

The work will be done by school staff, together with help from parents.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the sinks and materials, including pipe, fittings, fixtures, and tile.

Diadkovychi School Water Project - Ukraine

Diadkovychi School Water Project - UkraineLocation
Diadkovychi Village, Rivne Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Diadkovychi is a very rural village with farms and forests. The people are rather poor and the community at a whole is at a disadvantage.

The Diadkovychi School serves children from first grade until eleventh and serves kids from two other surrounding villages.

The parents of the children cannot afford to give very much money to the school for repair work, and the village government does not have much money to give back to the community.

Diadkovychi School Water Project - UkraineProblem Addressed
The plumbing system in the school is in very bad condition, as it has not been replaced in about 50 years. It is rusting and decaying, and the water is not safe for drinking.

Water is only available to the students on the first floor at a few sinks, and water does not reach the upstairs at all. This is a problem for the older students who have all their classes upstairs.

Project Description
This project is to replace the plumbing system in the school in order to provide adequate drinking water to all parts of the school.

The new plumbing will reach the second floor and will be available to the upper class for both drinking and other classroom needs. In addition, the water used for cooking will not have to be boiled and will be safer for students.

After purchasing the materials, the old and rusted pipes will be removed and replaced.

Diadkovychi School Water Project - UkraineThe Water Charity funds will be used to purchase two sinks (one for the first floor and one for the second floor), the pipe, fittings, and fixtures.

The community will supply the labor by the school’s handyman, and will pay any additional costs.

Project Impact
150 people will benefit from the project.

Novomykolaivka, School Number Two Water Project – Ukraine

Novomykolaivka, School Number Two Water Project – Ukraine

Location
Village Novomykolaivka, Verkhnodiprovsk Region, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine

Community DescriptionNovomykolaivka, School Number Two Water Project – UkraineNovomykolaivka is a town of around 4,000 citizens, situated about an hour and fifteen minutes outside the City of Dnipropetrovsk. Nestled alongside the famous Dnipro River, Novomykolaivka is home to domestic farmers, pensioners, and a significant workforce that commutes to the city for work every day.

There are two schools in the village that serve the community and the surrounding villages. School Number Two has 160 students from first to eleventh grade, as well as 30 staff members.

Problem Addressed
The village's water treatment facility is located about 20 kilometers away from Novomykolaivka and is very inconsistent in pumping water to the school. Because of this, several times each month the cafeteria is unable to make food for the all of the students and staff. This usually results in classes being shortened or cancelled all together.

During winter months, as temperatures drop to well below zero, students often do not wash their hands before or after lunch. There is also a shower room outside of the gymnasium which is never used after class because it is too cold. The cold water causes major hygiene issues during the winter months, with many students falling ill throughout the season.

Project Description
This project is to build a water storage system and install water heaters at the school.

A one square-meter reservoir will be installed in the school cafeteria. When water to the school is available, the tank will automatically be filled with up to 1,000 liters of water. When water is cut off to the school, the school cooks will draw from this tank, making is possible to cook for all students and staff.

A pump will be installed to circulate the water, not only to the cafeteria, but also to the school's toilets and sinks. This will keep the water in the tank moving and keep it from becoming stagnant.

For dispensing warm water hygiene, an electric water heater will be installed near the handwashing station. This 1,500 watt tank will hold up to 100 liters of hot water and be ready for use within one to two hours.

Novomykolaivka, School Number Two Water Project – UkraineThe second water heater for the two shower rooms will be a 5- to 12-kilowatt instant-flow system. It will be installed in the nurse’s office.

All equipment will be ordered over the internet and delivered through the Nova Poshta system. It will be retrieved from the Rayon center, 15 minutes away, by school volunteers.

All of the equipment will be installed by the school handyman and the school's shop teacher.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the equipment and materials.

School officials will use school funds, as well as raise money from parents, to purchase plastic tubing and valves.

The school will renovate a boy’s and a girl’s shower room that have not been used in the last twenty years.

Project Impact
This project will benefit 160 students and 30 staff.

Haivoron School #1 Water Project - Ukraine

Haivoron School #1 Water Project - Ukraine
Location
Haivoron, Kirovograd Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Haivoron is a small Rayon center located in the western-most corner of Kirovohrads'ka Oblast, near the Southern Bug River, and near a large highway that connects Kiev to Odessa.

There are approximately 15,000 people living in Haivoron, most of whom work within the town or in the surrounding villages.

Haivoron School #1 Water Project - Ukraine

The town has three schools (all build during the Soviet era), a bazaar, a park, and a cultural building, among other places of note.

Haivoron School #1 was built around the 1950's. The school supports more than 400 students - ranging from 1st to 11th form - and over 75 staff daily. The school consists of 30 classrooms, a gym, and two small gathering halls, as well as two bathrooms with squat toilets. The school is both a learning environment for students and an important cultural center for the community.

Problem Addressed
The toilets the kids use are extremely old squat toilets that do not flush. They are corroded and rusted and are cracking and falling apart. Regularly, the kids refrain from going to the bathroom, often "holding it" all day.

In addition, due to the fact that the waste does not exit the school properly, a rancid odor wafts through the halls of the first floor, where the classes are located for the youngest kids.

There are three sinks within the school. One is located within the bathroom for hand washing, and two on opposite ends of the school. Those sinks are for obtaining water for cleaning, as well as for the students and staff to use for drinking.

There are also sinks in the cafe which are used for cooking and cleaning daily.

All of the sinks are old and cracked, and the pipes and faucets rusted and corroded. The existing water filtration system does not function properly.

Haivoron School #1 Water Project - UkraineThe water quality has been tested, and reveals high levels of Nitrate (40 ppm), as well as high levels of pH (8), alkalinity (360 mg) and hardness (425).

The combination of these issues makes for a serious sanitation problem for the students, the staff, and the community, and their health is compromised on a daily basis.

Project Description
This project is to renovate the water and sanitation systems at the school.

The water filter will be replaced, and sinks, pipes and toilets will be purchased and installed.

The reverse osmosis filter will help to remove the nitrate and calcium that is in the water. This filter will also decrease the amount of sulfate, which will bring the pH balance back to a normal level.

The five-stage filters will perform as follows:

Stage 1: Sediment filter removes particulates down to 5 microns
Stages 2 & 3: Carbon block filter removes chlorine taste and odors
Stage 4: TFC membrane rejects impurities down to 1/10,000th of a micron
Stage 5: Final filter for enhancing water quality and taste

Four sinks for the bathrooms will be purchased for kids to wash their hands and for personal hygiene.

New piping and fittings will be installed, eliminating much of the sanitation concerns surrounding the use of those sinks for cleaning and drinking.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the toilets, sinks with faucets, and replacement piping.

The project is being carried out by Haivoron School #1 staff, which includes trained maintenance workers and community members.

Parents of the students will donate money to tile the bathrooms.

Project Impact
The project will benefit over 400 students as well as 75 teachers and staff.

Little Sunshine Kindergarten Bathroom Project – Ukraine

Little Sunshine Kindergarten Bathroom Project – UkraineLocation
Boguslavka, Borova District, Kharkov Region, Ukraine

Community Description
Boguslavka is an agrarian community of around 1,500 residents. It is surrounded by farmland where many of its residents engage in raising livestock and crops to both consume and sell.

The main employer for the community is the Little Sunshine Kindergarten, where around 175 students attend.

The school is the town's only kindergarten where parents can leave their children while they are at work. The building was completed in 1971, but was not converted into a kindergarten until 2001.

Two different age groups--infants (2-4 years of age), and preschool children (5-7 years of age)--attend the kindergarten, with a total of 50 children and 11 staff who make use of the building.

Little Sunshine Kindergarten Bathroom Project – Ukraine

Problem Addressed
Although the property of the kindergarten has outhouses, located 35 meters away, that are used by staff, they are too far away and inconvenient for the children to use, especially in colder and inclement weather.

Boys and girls, up to 7 years old, must use their own individual buckets in the presences of others for their personal needs. Staff then must empty each bucket with human waste into a larger bucket, and dump the larger buckets of waste outside. Staff must clean each bucket with harmful disinfectants after each use. This laborious process adds increased health risks to both staff and children.

Project Description
This project is to build a bathroom with two working toilets, two sinks, and a wash basin with a shower hose, within the kindergarten

Little Sunshine Kindergarten Bathroom Project – UkraineAn existing space in the building, between a classroom and the kitchen, will be converted into a bathroom.

A water supply that currently goes to the kitchen is sufficient to also handle the water needs of the bathroom.

There is currently a waste drainage system that pipes waste from the kitchen to a covered septic tank about 20 meters away. Piping will be installed to direct waste from the toilets, sinks, and wash basin to this tank as well.

A certified and experienced plumber from the area will purchase the needed parts and install the toilets, sinks, and wash basin according to proper standards.

The kindergarten staff will contribute by preparing the designated area, and by digging the trenches for the piping that will carry out the waste.

The Boguslavka Town Council will also contribute to the running of the underground line and connection to the septic tank.

A water tank and additional piping will also be provided by the community.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase two toilet assemblies (bowl, cistern, lids, etc.), two sinks (faucet, bowl, housing, etc.), a wash basin with a water dispenser, piping (pipes, tees/elbows, gaskets), plumbing related supplies, and 50 percent of the value of labor to install/set up the toilets and sinks. (The plumber will contribute by doing the work at a 50% reduction in fee.)

Project Impact
50 children, 11 adult staff, and around 15-20 parents who volunteer and help at the kindergarten throughout the week will benefit from the project.

Novomykolaivka, Verkhnidniprovsk Rayon, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Novomykolaivka, with a population of about 4,000, is located in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast in Ukraine. It sits 5 minutes from the Dnipro River and one hour north of the city Dnipropetrovsk. The community consists of a wide range of ages, from pensioners to couples with young families.

Two schools serve the surrounding area. School Number 1 is an old Soviet-era building that contains 280 students from the 1st grade to the 11th grade.

Problem Addressed
Novomykolaivka is serviced by a water treatment facility almost 20 kilometers away. The water supply, especially to the school, is very inconsistent.

Novomykolaivka School Number 1 Water Project – UkraineIn the warmer months during school, all water flow to the school is cut off, which results in school being canceled or cut short because there is not enough water to cook lunch and to serve the toilets at school. On average at least one to two months of the school year is changed because of this problem.

Project Description
This project is to install a new water supply and storage system at Novomykolaivka School Number 1.

Two reservoirs, along with a new pump and related piping and fixtures, will be installed at the school.

The first reservoir, 1 cubic meter in size, will be in the cafeteria, 20 meters from the school. It will enable cooks to feed students every day even when there is no water.

The second reservoir, .7 cubic meters in size, will be in the main school building. It will provide water for regular school use, including sanitation.

Novomykolaivka School Number 1 Water Project – UkraineThe reservoirs will be connected to city water system with additional piping, and a pump added.

The pump will operate whenever the main water line in Novomykolaivka is active in order to fill both reservoirs with water. The reservoirs will be kept full for use when the regular water supply is cut off.

The work will be done by the school handyman, with help from the parents of students. The community will also raise any additional funds needed for the project.

Water Charity funds will be used for the equipment and materials.

Project Impact
280 students, 25 teachers, and 15 staff members at the school will benefit.

Hrebinka School Number 1 Bathroom Project - UkraineLocation
Hrebinka, Poltavska Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Hrebinka is a small town of about 11,000 people located in central Ukraine in Poltavska Oblast. Although once bustling with industry, now the main employer is the railway station, as Hrebinka is an important junction. Hrebinka School Number 1 serves the community.

Problem Addressed
The students and staff of School Number 1 do not have access to clean, indoor toilet facilities. The existing toilet is an outhouse located about a two minute walk from the school, next to a communal trash dump used by people in the area.

Project Description
This project is to install an indoor bathroom at the school.

A classroom on the first floor, with an outside wall, will be converted into a bathroom. The bathroom will contain 2 urinals, 4 toilets, and 2 sinks, and will be partitioned into a men’s and women’s side.

Hrebinka School Number 1 Bathroom Project - UkraineA water supply will be established by tapping into the existing school water system. A new waste water system will be created. Work on the trench outside the classroom wall has already begun.

Tile will be laid around the toilets and cover the floor of the bathroom. Sewer lids will cover the newly installed waste system outside.

The fixtures will be purchased with money donated from the train depot. The installation of these will be done by contracted labor, assisted by the janitorial staff of the school, parents of students, and teachers.

The contracted labor will be paid from the remaining donation from the train depot, donations from parents and teachers, the Mayor of Hrebinka, and a local city council organization called the VRD group.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase materials, including bricks, cement, tile, sewer lids, pipes, and stall walls, and as needed for labor.

Zoziv Secondary School Bathroom Project - Ukraine

Zoziv Secondary School Bathroom Project - Ukraine
Location
Zoziv, Lypovets Rayon, Vinnytska Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Zoziv is a village located in the center of the Vinnytska Oblast - the heart of Ukraine, with a population of 1,500 people. Most residents work in agriculture, or grow food in their gardens for their main source of nutrition.

Located in the village are a cultural center, a library, a church, and a bar.

Zoziv Secondary School Bathroom Project - Ukraine

There are cleared fields that are used as soccer fields with bars that are conducive to outdoor workouts. However there are no indoor exercise facilities. In a place where there are below-freezing temperatures for nearly half of the year, the limited access to indoor exercise facilities is not conducive to promoting a healthy lifestyle among Zoziv residents.

Zoziv Secondary School has 200 students, ranging from 1st to 11th form. The school has 20 classrooms, a basketball court, a dining hall, and a theater hall.

Problem Addressed
Located in the basement of the secondary school is a room with gymnastics equipment. However, it has not been in use for years due to the lack of funding for maintaining plumbing facilities. Rather, it remains locked and in a state of disrepair.

There are squat toilets in the school. However, the school remains locked once the school day ends. The entrance to the indoor workout facility and changing rooms are separate, and so it has the potential to remain open.

Project Description
This project is to install sanitation facilities in the changing rooms of the secondary school.

One toilet, one sinks, and one shower will be installed in the gymnastics hall.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the fixtures and materials for a new toilet, sink, shower, faucet, piping, wall tiles, and flooring.

Zoziv Secondary School Bathroom Project - UkraineThe installation will be completed by community members as well as Zoziv Secondary School staff, including trained maintenance workers.

The school PE teacher will be leading the repairs in the gymnasium, and oversee the maintenance of it once completed. The students and staff will maintain the cleanliness of the facilities. Funds needed for future repairs will be raised within the community.

Project Impact
This project will directly benefit 200 students, 30 staff members, as well as members of the surrounding community, including parents who frequent the school.

Peace Corps Volunteer Directing Project
Jacqueline Sloves

Comments
The project will have an immediate impact on the physical and mental health of the residents of Zoziv. With improved access to staying active in the winter months, this will help counter seasonal disorders that many experience due to inactivity and decreased sunlight in the winter.

A secondary benefit is to provide youth with a healthy alternative to going to the local cafe, where many students begin to develop addictive drinking and smoking habits from a young age.
