Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link

Schools Sanitation Project

A year ago, the Link had a survey made of the needs that our partner schools have when it comes to water and sanitation – toilets! See the survey here: WASH report on schools. It will be a huge project, so we plan to start with a pilot project in one school – the one we think has little or nothing in the way of running water or toilets. When our little group visits Hastings SL in February, they will be meeting representatives of a big NGO called WeltHungerHilfe which has already done work on the water supply to the village, and is keen to work in partnership with the Link on the sanitation problem. Once the pilot project has been successfully completed, we hope to involve the whole community in setting up and maintaining good sanitation facilities in all the schools. Watch this space!
