The village of Chapsinja is split into two areas with a total population of over 500 people. The villagers were very aware that their poor water quality and lack of hygienic sanitation facilities was leading to the spread of disease. Many villagers had attempted to build their own latrines but termites had eaten the logs used for the sanitation platform and the latrines collapsed.
In July 2011, we assisted Chapsinja to build low cost sanitation platforms made from concrete. The villagers have now started a latrine building programme and are committed to ensuring that everyone has their own toilet.
We also trained the villagers how to build the Nafe pump. After construction of the pump, Chapsinja raised further funds and built a second pump without any assistance.
