Chervonuy Promin Secondary School Bathroom Project – Ukraine

Chervonuy Promin Village, Snihurivka Rayon, Mykolaivska Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Chervonuy Promin, which translates into red ray, is a small farming community of 554 people. Located in the South Central region of Ukraine in the Mykolaivska Oblast, the community has 2 stores, a post office, a library, a cultural center, and a school.

The profession of most people in the community is farming or teaching at the local secondary school. Most of the residents of Chervonuy Promin supplement their income by selling their dairy products at the market in a nearby city on the weekends.

Their main source of transportation in and out of the community is a train that runs through the community every other day. Otherwise, the residents have to walk about 2.5 kilometers to the highway to catch a bus.

Although very underdeveloped and neglected in funding because of its size, Chervonuy Promin is a community full of very hard-working, enthusiastic, and friendly people that are motivated to improve their community in whatever capacity they are able.

Chervonuy Promin Secondary School has 80 students and 20 staff members. Currently, there are only drop toilets outside the school for everyone to use. These were built in 1969, are falling apart, and are unsanitary. During the cold winter months of Ukraine, it is particularly difficult for the students to go outside and squat over a toilet.

Project Description
This project is to install an indoor toilet and sink at the school for the use of the students, teachers, and staff.

The toilet will be installed inside the school in an already-existing room which will be renovated to be used as a bathroom. Another room nearby will be renovated for the sink for washing hands.

Project funds will be used to purchase a toilet, sink, faucets, metal and plastic plumbing pipes, doors, cement, tile, and paint.

After the purchase of the materials, teachers at the school, along with two handymen who are staff members, have volunteered their time to renovate the rooms and install the plumbing.

Once completed, the bathroom will be kept up by teachers, staff, and community members.

Project Impact
This project will benefit 100 people, including 80 kids who attend the school, and 20 faculty and staff.
