Progress has many facets: We are building toilets!

School break at last!  I dash to the loo, so pressed my bladder feels like it could burst. I join the queue and wait nervously, anxious not to wet my pants. Then my turn comes but one look inside that pit latrine unsettles me. The place is teeming with maggots and faeces are scattered everywhere. I force my way in, "watch out now, no false moves but oh, the stench!" I hold my breath, there's hardly space for my feet. Desperate, I spot a free corner at the back of the room, I rush there swiftly and help myself. What a relief! How I wish I could clean my hands or feet afterwards but there is no water anywhere. With my head up, I match back to the classroom, away from all the dirt.

This is what school children in the Mukuyu community schools,  a rural village in the Kitale region of Western Kenya, go through every day. Change is long overdue.

Be part of the change today, support development with dignity!
