Found these interesting points on thewaterproject . com site:
- “When students are freed from gathering water, they return to class. With proper and safe latrines, girls stay in school through their teenage years
- Safe water, clean hands, healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty
- Access to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced. Schools can feed students with gardens, reducing costs.
- Access to water can break the cycle of poverty.”
I now realize the foresight and wisdom Wilto had in ensuring clean latrines were built first! Now we just need a good source of clean water and we’re asking for your help!
