4971 students and teachers are now enjoying our newest Rainbow School Toilets (RST)! Since the last update, the RST Initiative have built modern toilet infrastructure and provided hygiene training for 4 new beneficiary schools in Henan, which totals up to 10 RST schools since 2015. These 4 schools includes 2 secondary schools – Cheng Guan 1st and Ya Ling 2nd, and 2 primary schools – Yang Ling and Xi Cun.
It was also the launch of our pilot RST – Container toilet in Yang Ling, which is donated by Shandong Environmental Engineering Ltd. It is designed as an alternative to RST – Concrete as it is better suited for rural schools or teaching sites with lesser students (fewer than 270).
Many thanks also to Poo Pourri, a US based company well-known for manufacturing toilet perfume, which has donated Xi Cun’s RST – Concrete.
2 more school toilets are in the works by the end of the year, even as we conduct the monitoring of maintenance in all our projects thus far. The students can’t wait for our new toilets!
