Bensonton Primary School is the school most of the children will attend after graduating from our first project, Sacred Heart Basic School. After meeting the Guidance Counselor we were told of the decaying pit latrines at the school.
The latrines that were 45 years old and in severe disrepair. Kids, especially the girls, were scared to use them. They would develop kidney and urinary infections from “Not” going to the bathroom. The cost of this project was $13,000 and it was fully funded October 2011.
The children were so excited to have new bathrooms that they created a song and dance to celebrate which you can watch below.
