Reestablishing a safe environment for learning and living
St Joseph’s College Mabiri was established to provide education to people in the war torn areas in Bougainville, based on the belief that every child has a fundamental right to quality education within a safe, clean and hygienic environment. Nevertheless children at the school are forced to use the nearby forest as their toilet area because the college lacks sanitation facilities. This denies the children their human right to dignity and safety.
The school has a current cohort of over 350 boys between the ages of 13 and 21, making the need for a sanitation upgrade urgent. By providing a hygienic toilet facility, the school will be able to address one of the basic needs of its students, leading to improved health and learning outcomes.
Every student deserves access to clean water and hygienic sanitation facilities. By donating now you can provide them with a safe and hygienic environment.
