Sanitation Improved in Nigeria

By Ademokoya Emmanuel

washroom outside‎Two Rotary clubs in Nigeria worked cooperatively to improve the sanitation for 400 people in Ilesa, Nigeria.

The Rotary Club of Ilesha (District 9125) and the Rotary Club of Ikeja GRA (District 9110) constructed a Comfort Facility for the Ijesha Fairly Used Motor washroom insideParts Market in Ilesa, Osun State, Nigeria.

The structure consisted of five toilets and one shower room. The project which cost less than $4,000 was started and completed within the first 100 days in office of Ademokoya Emmanuel Oluwole, President of Rotary Club of Ilesa, and Bukola Bakare, President of the Rotary Club of Ikeja GRA.

The comfort station toilets will help prevent cholera and other associated epidemics in the area.

The Rotary Club of Ilesa is looking for additional grants and partnerships so they can build similar comfort stations for those that are less privileged, and make boreholes for communities without drinkable water.
