“In the pipeline 2/4″
This project is in the
process of fundraising
To improve the living conditions of the students and teachers of two schools, Muyange and Mitakataka, by strengthening their capacity to adapt to climate change and their independent access to resources.
This project will take place in two schools in the Bubanza province of Burundi: Muyange Primary School and Mitakataka Primary and Secondary School.
Left: Muyange School; Centre: Mitakataka School; and Right: One of Mitakataka School’s toilets
Neither school has access to water, and the children have to bring water with them from home or get it on the way to school. Both schools have a rainwater tank, but these are too small for the number of students and teachers, and currently neither of them are working.
Both schools have four toilets – two for girls and two for boys – but this is not enough for the number of students. While the Standards in Burundi state there should no more than 30 students per toilet: in Muyange, 167 children share one toilet, and in Mitakataka it is worse, with 185 children per toilet.
The project will take 18 months followed by 3 years of monitoring.
