Chernihiv Collegiym No. 11 Handwashing Station Project – Ukraine

Chernihiv, Chernihivska, Ukraine

Community Description Chernihiv is a city of approximately 310,000 residents located 100 km north of Kiev on the Desna River. It is a popular tourist destination due to its ancient churches and Antoniy caves.

Chernihiv Collegiym No. 11 is a 75-year-old school in Chernihiv. Handwashing facilities outside the school cafeteria no longer function, and students are not able to practice proper hygiene.

This project is to build handwashing facilities at the school.

Nine new sinks, faucets, and siphons will be installed outside the cafeteria.

Project funds will pay for materials and supplies, including tubing and mounting materials.

The local school system will provide the labor for installation, and Chernihiv Youth Employment Center will provide volunteer labor to purchase and deliver the materials to the work school.

Project Impact
This project will benefit 1,362 students (ages 6-17), 106 teachers and 34 staff members.
