Conclusion of Latrine Construction Training Project – Dominican RepublicThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer E. Monteith. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

This project was part of a larger effort to build 15 to 20 latrines, and conduct a construction, maintenance, and hygiene training program as part of the process.

In total, 18 latrines were built. Project funds were used to purchase cement, sand, gravel, zinc, wood, nails, hinges, PVC, and rebar.

All of the owners and families learned proper latrine placement to protect the water supply. They helped each other to build the latrines, and were all committed to maintaining them into the future.

The families came to 3 meetings pertaining to general latrine maintenance and hygiene as part of the program.

In all, about 100 people directly benefitted from the project from improved health and wellbeing.
