Construction and rehabilitation of sanitary blocks in schools


Although it is the economic capital of Mauritania, the city of Nouadhibou is faced with a lack of access to water and sanitation infrastructure, particularly in elementary school where access was very poor before the project.

In order to alleviate this worrying situation, a first phase of rehabilitation and construction of sanitary blocks was carried out in 8 elementary school of Nouadhibou in partnership with RONG and HAMAP Humanitaire.

A second project will aim to promote access to sanitation in 8 secondary schools (colleges and high schools) in the city. It will involve rehabilitating and building new sanitary facilities in order to promote hygiene in schools and thus improve the quality of education in the region.
