The project was to repair and upgrade the sanitation facilities at The Creative House for Children.

Emily reports:

We completed our most recent water project!

Project funds were matched by a community contribution. Funds were used to employ locally skilled technicians, replace pipes on the first and second-floor restrooms, replace the main pipe leading to the sewer system, replace first and second-floor sinks and toilets, as well as provide for cosmetic updates such as new paint and tiles. The ceiling of the second-floor restroom was also replaced.

The administrators of the youth programs at the Creative House for Children are delighted with the upgrades and especially appreciative of a ceiling that will be structurally sound in time for the upcoming winter. Children and community members with physical disabilities are especially appreciative of better access to the first-floor restroom.

We wish to thank Emily for completing this project, and again extend our gratitude to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding.
