Privacy is critical for retaining teenage girls in school especially during their menstrual periods. However a single latrine was being used by boys, girls and teachers at Kitswamba SDA primary school. RIDE AFRICA worked with the school and put up urinals and washrooms for boys so that they can be separated from girls in order to promote hygiene and sanitation as well as have privacy among the different genders in the school.
RIDE AFRICA has further offered financial support to the school to complete a latrine that will enable the separation of boys, girls and teachers. This will go a long way in retaining children in school especially during the adolescence and teenage period.
