New Latrine at Destiny Junior School

Constructions of the new latrine at Destiny Junior School in Uganda is well under way!

Phase 1 of the new latrine at Destiny School (costing UShs 9,200,000 - £2,140) was completed on 3rd December 2016. The work involved the excavation of 2 pits (each 20 feet by 20 feet; one for water; the other for general waste), and the site delivery of clay bricks, and river and lake sand.

Phase 2 is already underway - to start cementing the bricks to the walls of the pits, and the construction of the roof of the pits which will form the floor of the toilets to be built later. This work will take us into February, when the final stage of completing the latrine takes place. So far, an additional UShs 6,000,000 - £1,500 has been sent to Uganda to begin Phase 2 (to avoid children falling into the pits, as well as problems caused by rain). The final phase is expected to be completed by end of March 2017.

We are required to send a further sum of approx. £2,700 in January 2017 to complete Phase 2, and a final amount of possibly £1,600 to finish off the toilets for male and females (costing a total of approx. £8,000).

A big thank you to all supporters for helping us improve the school facilities. A new latrine will greatly improve the experience for the students.
