In a village hall meeting prior to the launch of the project, MWIDEFU chairman made it clear to school heads, school board members and village heads that the community must have
- already dug ditches for laying water connection pipes from the main to the toilets and kitchen/dining areas
- latrines and kitchens that are in poor conditions have to be brought up to standards which may involve digging new pits or building new structures.
Old school kitchens
- good latrines with multiple taps outside them for personal hygiene,
- multiple taps outside dining/kitchen area for hand washing before meals and dishwashing,
- fuel-efficient and smoke free kitchens with counter top which allows food to be prepared off the floor, and
- water storage capacity varying from 3,000 – 5,000 lt., depending on location and the size of enrollment.
The Project was support by
the Rotary Clubs of Moshi and Mwika
a consortium of 13 Clubs in the same Rotary District and
a Global Grant from rhe Rotary Foundation (TRF)
