Phase I Project Cost:
US$3,500 - Fully Funded
In Sierra Leone, 85.5 percent of the population lives without basic toilets. In fact, the lack of clean water and sanitation influenced a horrific outbreak of Ebola in 2014.
Koinadugu College fully supports the UN's Sustainable Development goal to achieve universal access to basic sanitation and ending the unsafe practice of open defecation. Having access to clean toilets and sanitation facilities plays a vital role in reducing disease and preventable deaths around the world. For women and girls, having access to private toilets plays a significant role in their safety and equality - allowing them facilities to manage menstruation in privacy.
Funding will cover the cost of a basic private sanitation facility upon the college's launch (similar to the image at right), with further plans for a more sophisticated sanitation facility (such as compostable toilets) to be scoped out in future phases.
