Peace School Constructs Its permanent Toilets

When we started, we repaired a pit latrine of the neighboring lady. Since then, we have been using that pit latrine. We experienced many inconveniences since the neighbor had tenants who were very slow and reluctant of cleaning the latrines after use. However, due to the limited resources we had then, we had to be patient and continue cleaning while we shared with many other people.

This whole story changed when we got funding from the Buddhist Global Relief. Part of the funding was to go for toilet construction. The construction of toilets was delayed. This is because, we had to secure a small portion of land besides the school where the toilets would be constructed. In January when Bhante Buddharakkhita had just returned from his teaching at Union Theological Seminary (USA), this small portion of land was acquired and the construction of the toilets started immediately. Now, Peace School children have proper toilets without any other competitors.

The School admitted more 12 pupils this year making a total of 24 learners.

The Peace School administration would like to take this chance to thank the Buddhist Global Relief, Mr. Kamal and the Sri Lankan community in Uganda, Mrs. Bashar and family together with the Nepalese community in Uganda, Ms. Moe Moe and the Burmese Buddhist community, the family of Mr. Krishnar Shamnandar and many people from overseas for their great support and contributions towards the running of the Peace School. As a school, we are truly indebted to all your support.
