Date: 26th January, 2021
This toilet / sanitary building facility Renovation project is part of a comprehensive rehabilitation project at the Home of Destitutes located in OKOBABA, Ebute Metta, Lagos State, Nigeria. Commissioned on 26th January, 2021, this toilet facility now serves the occupants of the destitute home.
The Renovation started on the 12th January, 2021, the process lasted for 2 Weeks and was facilitated by the District Rotaract Representative, Rtr. Adedeji A. Windapo.
As part of a comprehensive effort to provide adequate sanitary facilities in this underserved community. The toilet/sanitary facility features 4 blocks of toilet stalls. The new toilet facility is a beacon of hope for the young and olds, most of whom have never seen a water system toilet before, and most importantly will help improve sanitary conditions and prevent the spread of diseases.
This project was adopted and mainly sponsored by DGN (DR.) Buchi Anikpezie.
As young Rotaractors which are equally Humanitarians, We are delighted to present this toilet / sanitary facility to the Destitute Home. This project was initiated with every individual, young and old in this community and its environs in mind.
Before the beginning of the Rotary year 2020-21, several Rotaract clubs within the Rotaract District has always had a Destitute welfare and Palliative Project at the Okobaba Community and it was identified that the Home of Destitute, Okobaba lack a proper basic sanitary facility. The toilet facility was in a very bad state; it required a thorough rehabilitation assistance. As a follow-up, Rotaract District 9110NG took up the responsibility in January 2021, this toilet facility has been completed as part of our overall effort to improve and provide a hygienic sanitary facility.
The goal of this project was to provide adequate sanitation and hygiene for the occupants especially considering the needs for sanitation and personal hygiene to the less privileged. The old pit latrine used by the members of this destitute home exposed them to diseases due to open defecation.
Because we understand the power of cleanliness and personal hygiene, our hope is that by providing this toilet facility, the children of this community will be healthier as the spread of diseases will be reduced.
