Sanitation for Dignity Project Completed!
We are glad that the new 7- unit latrine toilets are now completed! We’ve been supporting IN Ghana with funds to construct new toilets at the Togbe Aho Memorial School at Kebenu, Central Tongu District, Ghana.
The toilets and changing room have been solidly built and finished to quality standards with a demarcation for the girls’ areas from the boys. The new units will put an end to open defecation by students and allow girls in particular to come to school during their periods, as they now have facilities to wash and a changing area.
Earlier this month, IN Ghana also supported a forum on toilet facility usage and appropriate sanitation and hygiene habits in collaboration with the Ghana Health Services, Health Promotion Unit.
The Parent Teacher Association, represented by staff and executives of the Association also met to share ideas on how to ensure the sustainability of the project. They discussed ways to ensure that the facility is kept clean at all times and how the PTA can fundraise for maintenance.
The children of Togbe Aho Memorial School are very excited this academic season given the new facilities!
