Tawa Fall Elementary School Bathroom Project - Senegal

Tawa Fall Elementary School Bathroom Project - SenegalLocation
Tawa Fall, Thies, Senegal

Community Description
Tawa Fall is located near Thies, the capital of Thies Region in Senegal.

Problem Addressed
The elementary school in the village has functioned with no bathroom since it was built. Students use the bushes around the school or they wait until they go home.

Project Description
This project is to build a three-stall latrine, two for students, and one for teachers, with running water for handwashing.

The project is being implemented by the Tawa Fall Elementary School Bathroom Committee and will be directed by a skilled mason.

Water Charity funds will go toward materials, including cement, gravel, sand, and PVC piping.

The community has already begun digging the pit, and will provide unskilled labor.

There will be instruction on latrine usage. Monitoring by teachers will encourage habitual, effective handwashing after bathroom use.

Project Impact
80 students will benefit from the project

Comments
Water Charity is participating in this project in coordination with the Peace Corps Partnership Program. In providing the “last dollars needed” (sometimes a small amount and sometimes large), we give the push to start the projects immediately.

New skills will be gained by the participants in effective sanitation and handwashing. Participation from the community will lead to empowerment to undertake future projects, as well as improved health and sanitation.
