Description of the project:

The Anania School was destroyed after the crisis in the country.
Thanks to ASAFEBU, the school has been rebuilt, but it is far from finished.
The hygienic conditions for students and teachers are appalling. In terms of toilets, they only have an unsecured open well made by the parents of students.
This situation makes Anania's school a breeding ground for bacteria, partly due to the lack of water. All these circumstances lead to more absenteeism, children's disinterest in education and poor school performance.
The aim of the project is the installation of rainwater harvesting and the construction of toilets.


The aim of the project is to improve the framework and study and working conditions of pupils and teachers and to strengthen the understanding of school hygiene.

Budget: 6.000 €
