Drinking water - deep bore wells for every district of Klologo

Construction

of

our

first

two

deep

bore

wells

with

a

total

of

nine

water

points at the high school and in Gatipeme-Gassime.

"Water for Klologo" - under this motto we started in summer 2019. In the meantime - as of summer 2020 - two wells with a total of nine water points are available to the residents of Klologo. The deep bore wells are equipped with solar submersible pumps. In line with our concept that development is not possible without locally involved actors, the village population took over a large part of the excavation work for the drilling site and pipelines. More wells are planned - the priority now is the health station! - so that all parts of the village can enjoy clean water. The fountains were inaugurated on 16 January 2020 - a proud day for Kekeli Togo! Click here for the travel blog. Messan Amegniho from AGERTO was the project leader; he was supported by L'Honorable Togbui Messan Robert Gati IV, the village headman, as well as by Seraphin Bocco from CIDK (Comité Intervillageois pour le développement de Klologo), with whom Kekeli e.V. has established a partnership relationship. An experienced local drilling company was commissioned and AGERTO took over part of the construction and installation work. The CIDK and the team of the drilling company ensure the participation of the villagers in the construction and maintenance of the wells and regulate the financial contribution to maintenance and repairs. In this way, the project is set up for the future.

Sanitation - hygienic toilets and washbasins throughout the village.

Where is the toilet here, please?

A normal question for us when we are on the road. And while we are hoarding toilet paper for the second Corona Lockdown, elsewhere there are no toilets at all. 19 November is UN World Toilet Day; the aim is to raise awareness of the global sanitation crisis in order to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6: Water and Sanitation for All by 2030. Sanitation is critical for health, child development and social and economic progress. They are also an important contribution to climate protection. How far we still are from achieving this goal is shown by startling facts and figures from a report by WHO and UNICEF: 4.2 billion people use toilets where waste goes untreated; 673 million people have no toilets at all and defecate in the open; 367 million children attend schools without toilets; Over 10 per cent of hospitals are without sanitation facilities; Only 32 per cent of forcibly displaced people have basic sanitation. We at Kekeli are making a small contribution so that at least in Klologo, the village we serve with our projects, latrines are available.

Construction of a latrine in 2019/2020 in the Gatihomé district

A latrine with 6 cubicles and a hand washing facility has also already been built in Gatihomé, as there are no toilets, as in all rural areas of Togo.

Grant for "Hygiene 3.0

In Klologo, we have provided clean water by drilling wells (Hygiene 1.0) and hygienic toilets by building latrines (Hygiene 2.0). Nowadays, people everywhere are urging people to wash their hands to avoid the risk of infection. But what good is an appeal if there are no opportunities? For our new project Hygiene 3.0, we were able to convince "Apotheker helfen e.V." to give us a grant for the installation of 40 mobile hand-washing stations in Klologo, distributed over important locations such as schools, market places and kindergartens. The hand-washing stations make an important contribution to the containment of the Corona pandemic and other communicable diseases.

Construction

of

a

12-cabin

latrine

with

flushing

between

the

market

and primary school in 2021

A latrine with twelve toilet cubicles and long washbasins with soap dispensers was built in a central location on the school square - it is a government school. The latrine has water connection. Clearly visible hygiene instructions have been placed above the washbasins, in pictograms - there are many illiterate people in the village - as well as in writing. The liquid soap is produced by local women. We received our first grant from the Schmitz Foundation for this project.

Construction

of

a

sanitary

building

with

toilets

and

showers

for

girls

only between the middle and high school in 2021.

Construction of a sanitary building with six toilet cabins (WC), two shower cabins with two showers each, a sanitary room and four washbasins only for girls (and women) in the schoolyard between the middle and high school. Girls can perform their menstrual hygiene there during their period without the usual shame and also otherwise be undisturbed and without male glances among their peers. The sanitary building especially for women and girls - the first in the area - complements and crowns Kekeli Togo's project for the promotion and protection of young girls. Construction costs: EUR 12,000. We received funding for the sanitary building from the Conrad Foundation and eudim.

New water troughs in September 2021

Our two deep bore wells in Klologo supply a large part of the village with fresh water; when the pipes were built, the men of the village dug the trenches themselves. We built simple wells as water points, taps from which the water can be taken. Two more were needed now: at the grammar school and at the primary school. Here we decided on a different construction method - there are now several water taps available, and the water is collected in a bake and does not simply run into the ground. The earth is very loamy - the bricks of our buildings were formed out of it, by the by the villagers! - and clay soil plus water results in the right kind of mud and dirt. The new water troughs are beautifully tiled and thus also a visual enrichment of the village.

Sex education and contraception in September 2021

Within the framework of education about personal hygiene, contraceptives, condoms, we want to provide concrete assistance to the girls. Both the Kekeli Togo Association and the local committee are currently seeking donations in kind from NGOs and the "Apotheker Helfen" association: Contraceptive syringes (Sayana Press), condoms, washable sanitary towels (keyword: period poverty!). Washable sanitary towels are also sewn by trainee seamstresses in the village, whose training we pay for. The company Frank Walder in Münchberg has agreed to sew washable sanitary towels for Klologo; the non-woven fabric has been donated by the company Mündel in Hof. The association is still looking for donations for material - after all, sanitary napkins are to be available for years to come! N.B.: Contraceptives are not administered by the committee, but by the nurse / midwife of the local health centre (for minors in consultation with the parents). She is also a member of the CPPJF.

Dental hygiene training in September 2021

A dentist from Hof volunteered to give dental hygiene training in Klologo.
