The team and the outhouses

The team that is here are building 5 two seater latrines in the village.  These latrines will serve 3 families/household.  Each family had donated something towards the latrine.  The three families together had to provide sand, rocks, water and dig the hole.  We are providing labor, cement, blocks, PVC pipe, iron, tin, wood, locks hinges, etc to finish the toilet.  So this team donated the funds to do five.
