I'm designing this POOPOH SCHOOL BATHROOM page to activate my friends and beyond to support our project to build a bathroom: My six Godchildren live in a little village in North Sulawesi, Indonesia and the local school in their town does not have a bathroom. In this community of 260 families there is no restaurant, no hotel nor is there a store... A few cigarette kiosks and home-style baking goods are sold on front porches but the little school, attended by 40+ kids, has not toilet/ shower. The kids do their "business" in the ocean or a nearby outhouse, if relatives let them... Clearing a self-constructed ceptic tank is a whole other story and the project requires to be build environmetally sane.
Last year I financed the construction of a water well, and we are ready to take on the next step and build the bathroom and shower facility for their school:
We need your help and support.
Cement, stone, wood and utilities (pipes, faucettes and toilet) will cost about $4.500. Ceptik tank, water tower, roof, windows and tiles are estimated at $5.500 and professional labor is another $2000 - we have a great volunteer group of village folks ready to start the project. Any proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly towards the school for educational material uregently needed...
I'm personally going to Indonesia in March 2016 (on my own expense) to make sure everything will work out as intended - yes, the people of PooPoh are inceredibly humble, nice and trustworthy and I can guarantee they will participate in keeping all of you, and the volunteers updated with stories and pictures: Thank you in the name of the PooPoh school!
