Hope for Healthy living.

It was a new month, and Musa was expectant, he had heard from the elders that this was the month they would get basic sanitation facilities In the community as designed by the volunteers that usually visited them.

This would be a huge milestone for the fasksri community, a small group of people who were predominantly farmers and herdsmen, and were out of touch with the fast changing pace of the world, only one percent of the children in the community attended school, reasons been that they steady needed hands on the farm so they couldn’t let the kids attend school and leave the elders to herd cattles. These people certainly could not boast of clean water talk more of basic sanitation facilities. They were simple locals whose source of water was from Wells dug overtime which they used for almost everything from cooking to the irrigation canals for their farmlands. They had no system of waste disposal, and used the bushes to relief themselves, hence polluting the environment and creating a system of improper waste disposal.

The project for building sanitation facilities for them was a well thought plan, These facilities would give them a sense of dignity and encourage privacy and a sense of safety especially for the females in the community, that were always bothered when they had to use the bushes to conduct their business.
A clean toilet would mean:
1- Healthier life choices
2- Better sanitation.
This was the first step to the rehabilitation program for a community without noticeable touch of modernization in this ever increasing and changing world.
