The primary school in Mambo has 2000 children. Te accommodation is to small and especially the toilets are worrisome because the hygienic circumstances are too bad.
Thanks of  OBS Herman Gorter te Zaandam in the Netherlands 2 new toilets can be made. One for boys and one for girls.

After consultation the  VEO (Village execute officer) mad a first design. Then MamboViewPoint made a better drawing.
The best bricklayer of the village, Chekatutu will take the daily management. MamboViewPoint is controlling and paying the bills
The idea is to shift the faces and
the urine to speed up composting.
The pit will be emptied once a year and the manure will be saved in another pit till it is ready for fertilization.

The project is finished. From here the newest activities are on top.

The decision is made, The toilets are finished with money from the village development fund from  MamboViewPoint.
We decide to rebuild an old toilet for the boys in stead of making a new one to save money. Also materials from the old toilets are re-used. It can go fast now
