Work starts on new toilet facilities, January 2016

posted Jan 29, 2016, 12:46 PM by Ma Nirvikalpini Nithya   [ updated Jan 29, 2016, 12:52 PM ]

Work has started on the toilets at Starlight Family School. At the end of 2015 government inspectors  threatened to close the school if they do not upgrade their toilet facilities. Fortunately kind donations and the proceeds of a competition run by Western Union have raised enough money to pay for purpose built brick facilities with adequate ventilation and hand washing facilities. This will improve the hygiene and health and keep the school open.
