Info about the Latrine Construction in Senegal

This proposal requests the sum of $1,758.96 for the construction of 47 latrines in two Senegalese villages. Lacking access to basic sanitation, residents have no choice but to relieve themselves directly on the ground just outside the village proper. This increases the rates of diarrhea and other diseases in the villages. Furthermore, dangerous items are discarded carelessly due to the lack of a proper place to dispose of them, ending up in the hands of young children and babies.

In coordination with Peace Corps, the villages have developed Community Action Plans that have identified the construction of latrines as a necessary means to achieving their goal of improving village health and overall sanitation. However, they lack the means to accomplish this on their own. The communities have pledged to contribute a considerable amount of labor and materials comprising 15% of the total project cost as well as a 10% cash contribution. They need your help—please assist them in making their communities a better place to live.
