THE Dundee Precious Metals Tsumeb Community Trust upgraded the toilet block at Etosha Secondary School in Tsumeb in Oshikoto region at the value of N$122 252.
This was done in line with chapter five of Harambee Prosperity Plan (HPP) that acknowledges the elimination of the bucket system by 2017. The Dundee Community Trust came to the fold with the recent six toilets block handover to the school, which aligns with their community investment core value.
Dundee Community Trust administrator, Andre Struwig highlighted the long term positive health benefits of having sanitary toilets and stating that clean toilet facilities is a basic need and necessity in any school environment.
“The Dundee Community Trust will play its role in support of our President’s Harambee Prosperity Plan wherever possible and by upgrading already existing toilet facilities the Trust prevents the toilets from falling into complete ruin. These toilet blocks will benefit 800 learners” he added.
The block’s toilets were equally split between learners and teachers, with two toilets allocated to boys and the other two to girls, whilst the remaining two were reserved for teachers.
“Providing hygiene and sanitation facilities in schools will create an enabling school environment, awareness of hygiene and sanitation will ultimately lead to fewer water borne illnesses. Everyone knows there is joy in using a clean toilet, this also encourages learners to keep the toilets clean, tidy and maintained,” concluded Struwig.
Etosha Secondary School principal, Andris Kaishungu commended the Dundee Community Trust for coming to the aid of his learners. Pointing out that it was one less thing off the Etosha Secondary school to-do list.
