Luis Daniel Fonseca School

Honduras 13 beneficiaries El Canton

Project Complete!

Escuela Luis Daniel Fonseca is located in the Community of El Canton, in the Municipality of Danli in El Paraiso. The school has piped water, but it’s untreated and not safe to drink. There is only one latrine which is in terrible condition and the children have no place to wash their hands.
Edy Dinora Figueroa began teaching there in August, 2019. She explains that she is trying to recover the enrollment as last year it dropped to only 13 students. Many students left for another school much further away due to the poor water and sanitation conditions. She says that a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene education) intervention  will motivate the parents to allow their children to once again attend their community school.  
The WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Education) project at Escuela Luis Daniel Fonseca, of which H2O for Life will provide 50% of the funding, will provide the school with sustainable access to clean water and sanitation. They will receive training and mentoring on how to integrate WASH into the school curriculum. Students will receive hygiene training as well as menstrual hygiene management training. The school will receive a biosand water filter, gender specific latrines and a handwashing station. Our implementing partner, Pure Water for the World, will also monitor this community, at regular intervals, to measure impact and support the program’s long-term sustainability.
