HPP China: In CDP Zhenkang main focus of the Village Action groups last year has been around improving hygiene and sanitation and improves capacities within these two areas.
Community Development Zhenkang together with the community has started a low cost initiative in bringing improvements in people’s Health and Hygiene .320 active members in the Village Action Groups have this year built 132 Eco-San toilets benefitting 550 people, constructed 105 solar heaters and shower rooms benefitting 1,000 people. They have also constructed shower rooms in the local school where 318 boarding students will benefit from it.
Additionally the community constructed garbage pools in 3 different natural villages with the support of the project. This has been a good measure for hygiene improvement because the community now has a place to deposit garbage, unlike before when they were throwing garbage away everywhere. The construction of these storages will help 200 families.
