40th anniversary, 40 latrines!
On the occasion of our 40th anniversary, Protos opens a total of 40 toilets in Benin (municipalities Lokossa and Athiémé), Mali (Bamako Commune IV and Mountougougoula) and Uganda (Nyakeera). The UN calculated that in these countries only 14, 31 and 19% of the population have access to basic sanitary facilities respectively.
Protos and its local partners primarily built school latrines, but also some private toilets. A total of 1,992 people will henceforth be able to relieve themselves in a dignified manner. The inauguration of the toilets took place in the week prior to World Toilet Day (19 November).
