Last week, some 75 children and their teacher’s received two toilets, with an additional four for their community.

“This is really a big achievement for the school and our little children as water and sanitation is one of our priority development plans for the school for the next three years,” said Alice Bunia, a kindy teacher at Ghavaga Kindergarten.
