Latest block of school toilets in Ghana officially opened by village chief

Posted on Tue, 11/04/2017 - 10:11am

Money from Buriton has provided scores of children with somewhere safe and clean to go to the loo during school time - which, in turn, helps to boost attendances

Children in the outlying hamlet of Ananekrom, near to Dominase in the far north of the Central Region of Ghana, now have their first ever toilets.

Until now boys and girls, like most of their families at home, have had to squat in the bush around the village when they have wanted to go to the loo.

Now, thanks to Buriton's link, all that can change - and all the children will be able to wash their hands thanks to a big tank which collects rainwater from the roof.

Children, particularly girls, will now be able to attend school more consistently as they know that they have some privacy when needed. 

Everyone in Ananekrom and in Dominase is very grateful - and work to help families get their first ever household toilets continues to make good progress too.

Every penny that is raised is spent directly on projects in Dominase - and relatively small amounts of money can make really big differences there.
