Last year our we were involved with a Compassion project in Ethiopia which was working to improve sanitation facilities at four of its development centres. Before the intervention, across the four centres, 1,222 children had to share 8 dirty and unsafe toilets that exposed them to disease and in some cases stopped them from coming to the centres altogether. Now there are six toilets and two showers at each of the four centres. The children feel much more comfortable using the facilities and are much more likely to attend the centre regularly. This means that the children will spend more time learning critical life skills and receiving personal support.
For the children living in these communities, life has improved significantly.
