The project was designed to upgrade the bathroom facilities at the gymnasium by replacing 3 sinks and faucets, repairing 3 toilets with new seats and water boxes, repairing non-functioning drains and pipes, and renovating a shower stall.

Ilse reports:

The project at School 16 to renovate a shower room and replace all fixtures in several unusable restrooms has been completed within budget and on schedule.

All new toilets, sinks, and faucets were installed by the school maintenance staff. The shower room, previously used for storage, is now fully functional with two new showerheads and new tile walls. The school plans to redo the shower room floor in the near future.

All plumbing connections and piping were replaced or added as necessary.

Ilse reports on how the project was received by the community:

The school director, his staff, the students and the teachers are thrilled. These improvements will allow for a much more hygienic environment and will greatly expand the usability of the gym.

Everyone involved thank you very much for your kind support and assistance.

We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for the project.
