Creative House for Children Bathroom Project – Ukraine

Sokal Town, Sokal District, Lvivksa Oblast, Ukraine

Community Description
Sokal is a town of approximately 22,000, located on the banks of the Bug River in the Lviv Oblast of western Ukraine.

The Creative House for Children is an organization that supports activities for youth. Each day they support the creative efforts of 100-180 children through various workshops. Activities include arts and crafts, HIV/AIDS awareness, dance, and outdoor events. Throughout the year the organization offers over 29 different workshops for youth.

While the building is functional, the plumbing system is dated and inadequate to serve the number of children the organization hosts each day. A second floor toilet and sink were damaged when the roof collapsed in 2009.

Project Description
This project is to repair and upgrade the sanitation facilities at The Creative House for Children.

Project funds will be used to replace pipes for waste disposal and to replace the second floor toilet and sink. Two bathrooms will be fully refurbished as funds allow.

The work will be done by local skilled technicians.

Project Impact
200 people will benefit from the project.
