In May 2014 PPMK initiated a toilet project. This project was developed as means of giving back to the community with the surplus from our “Short Term Loan” project. We did a small survey and collected data from the 188 clients we had at the time. We discovered that 35 families were so poor that they did not have a toilet or bathroom. They had no choice but to relieve themselves in the closest stream.
Due to limited resources, we were only able to build toilets for four families in 2014. However, from then on, we have continued to build toilets for our poorer clients every year. It has now been four years since we commenced this project, and we have now provided a total of 25 of the families with latrine facilities.
Throughout time, we have also registered new clients who are in need of toilet facilities. By the end of 2017, we had registered an additional 20 poor families who were without toilet facilities. Our current goal is to build another 20 toilets over the next two years.
By the end of 2018, we completed 6 toilets and in 2019 3 additional toilets has been completed. remain. In total we have completed 28 toilet facilities and 28 underprivileged families have benefited directly from this project. We would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of donors and supporters who contributed to this project, without whom these families would continue to live without hygienic and private latrines.
This project is implementing every years with new list of poor families who are without toilet facilities.
