School Sanitation Project: Monitoring and Evaluation
Water for South Sudan (WFSS) aims to bring clean water, hygiene educations, and sanitation programs to the people of South Sudan. The organization has been drilling water wells in South Sudan since 2005, and providing hygiene education since 2014. In 2015 WFSS began researching sanitation projects and spent the next two years assessing possible locations for a pilot sanitation project. In 2017 Zogolona Primary School in Wau was chosen as the site to inaugurate the sustainable sanitation project. Zogolona serves approximately 800 students. The school and community demonstrated their willingness to meet all criteria for maintaining a pit latrine. In 2018 and into 2019 we continue to work with Zogolona Primary School to ensure upkeep of the latrine and feasibility of the school sustaining this long-term.
Following the construction of a pit latrine at this school as a pilot sanitation project for WFSS, team members now monitor this site on a weekly basis to ensure the school is adequately maintaining the latrine. Pending successful maintenance and sustainability of the latrine, WFSS will look to expand this program by constructing more sustainable latrines in South Sudan.
