It was our 7th birthday on the 6th September 2019 and in celebration it was our desire is raise NZ$7,070 to enable a VIP toilet block to be constructed at Rwenjaza Hillside School. Presently a three classroom block, thanks to FOP UK, is under construction but with additional classrooms comes the need for additional toilets.
We have great delight in announcing that this ‘very important’ need has been fully funded. Thank you to those who contributed – we so appreciate your support.
A VIP toilet is not just a toilet for Very Important People (despite all our school children being very important). It is a Ventilated Improved Pit toilet and this brick building will be made up of:
- 10 toilets for pupils: (five for girls and five for boys).
- Four toilets for teachers: (Two for ladies and Two for gents).
- Male pupils will have an exterior urinal area on their side.
- Female pupils will have an internal bathing/shower room fitted with a showerhead and tub.
- Both user areas will be fitted with hand washbasins.
- There will also be a sanitation storage room.
