BACKGROUND

Nyamatete is located 30 minutes outside the town of Muhanga in the Muhanga province of Rwanda. There is a school at Nyamatete but that school was in need of new toilets and clean water. The old toilets at Nyamatete were ‘long drops’ which meant that the waste could not be treated. This was unhygienic for the children and left the toilets and surrounding area with an unbearable smell. 

OUTCOMES

These toilets use chemical treatment to safely break down waste, which can then be used as fertilizer for crops. Equipped with hand-washing facilities, they promote hygiene and sanitation. Additionally, a new water catchment system supplies water for students, teachers, and the Nyamatete village year-round, storing water collected during the wet season. This water serves various purposes, including washing, sanitation, gardening,  and drinking, contributing significantly to the health and hygiene of the students, their families, and the community at large.
