Sanitation Project Underway for Hostel with 160 Boys

Katihar Boys’ Hostel needed new toilets. Thanks to you, this project is underway.

“We have 160 boys in the hostel. We want to give them better facilities so that their life here will be more comfortable. Due to lack of toilets, children are not having a proper time for their needs. Some are always late as they have to queue for the toilets.” —Father Xavier, Katihar Boys’ Hostel Administrator

“We had only eight toilets for day use and two for night use. In 2013 World’s Children added six more toilets for day use and in 2016 they built six for night use.

“The six toilets made in 2013 were damaged by hail and the veranda between the toilets has no roof. During the rain the children get wet when they go in and come out to the toilet. So, we plan to build a concrete roof that will last long.”

“We are planning to put the new toilet building near the old set of toilets. We are going to put tiles on the floor and two feet high on the walls. We are planning to have running water for the toilets. The children use the hand pump for their morning wash.” —Father Xavier, Katihar Boys’ Hostel Administrator
