Ssango Project Complete

Posted by Steve Hall on September 23, 2021
⁠Ssango Primary School students were already beneficiaries of a 40,000 liter rainwater harvesting system, but in dire need of latrines. At this Ugandan school, there is a small population of special needs children as well who needed safer access to a toilet. By building two latrine blocks with handicapped accessibility and handwashing facilities, hygiene, sanitation and health will be changed forever.

Project Update: Ssango Primary School- Mpigi District, Uganda

Our implementing partner, Drink Local Drink Tap (DLDT), constructed two buildings (one boys, one girls). Each building has several stalls for the students of Ssango. One stall has physical handicap adjustments, one stall has small child considerations, the male block has a urinal and the female block has a bathing room for feminine hygiene care. Each building has a handwashing facility that is filled with soap and water daily.

In the photos, you will see that even the military leader in the area came to see the project and say thank you. Due to Covid-19 shutdowns and travel restraints as well as political elections in Uganda, there were several delays, but in the end, the project is considered a great success!

In early 2021 Ssango also received a new borehole well along with a supply of water filters (This portion of the project was not sponsored by H2O for Life).
