Last year the health inspector threatened to close down the Little Stars School if the old latrines were not closed and new ones built. There weren’t enough latrines (only five voor more than 600 students), there were full and they were situated too close to the watertank and dormitories. We have good news because thanks to various sponsors and the vmbo department of Schaersvoorde the school needn’t be closed because 16 new latrines are being installed at the right spot. Two deep holes (60 ft deep!) have been dug and 2 buildings of 8 latrines each are being built over the holes. The builder told us that the work will be finished before the end of the holidays when the new term will start. We are so happy that the education for the children in this remote area will continue.
