This was the letrine. A three-seater. The termites had destroyed the wood structure, and the paint, well, you can see for yourself. The doors would no longer work at all. We adjusted the doors, changed the structural beams, applied anti-termite treatment, and painted the entire thing.
Almost the entire school interior and all of the exterior was painted with an oil-based paint. There is a well on the property which had long ago gone dry. We dug it an additional 4 meters and then placed a submersible pump in it, and sealed the top with a large reinforced concrete top with a heavy duty padlock.
Believe it or not, someone is down there!!! What a job. The parents, CPC, and other members of the community did an awesome job. The result of all this well rehabilitation:
