In the Long Run

Fred and his five children live in a one bedroom house in Buswiga. Their compound, surrounded by plants and a few tall trees, didn’t have a functioning latrine. After a sensitization visit from VHT Betty (trained by UVP), Fred learned that the benefits of building a pit latrine would outweigh the costs. Enhancing his family’s sanitation and hygiene facilities would cost less in the long run, because he could spend far less money on illness-related medical bills. Empowered by this information, Fred decided to build a pit latrine for his family and UVP was there to provide support. Learn more about Fred in a recent blog post, where he shared his story with our team.
