Sanitation facilities for Students

Project year: 2022 • Lanka Fundamental Rights Organization


To assist the students who did not have proper sanitation facilities in the School


Thakshila Maha Vidyalaya is a mixed School with about 650 students, situated in Bogas Handiya, Mahawilachchiya in the Anuradhapura District.
This is the area where farmers were murdered during the Civil War and the villages undergo severe difficulties as wild elephants are invading their areas regularly. Even though the wildlife officers were instructed earlier to set up an emergency commanding Centre in this regard, no steps have been taken so far to set up such a unit. Mahawilachchiya is considered an under-developed area in the district. Surrounded by historic Tantirimalaya and the Vilpattu National Park, Mahawilachchiya has about 40,800 people. They have been undergoing severe difficulties with lack of drinking water, and the human-elephant conflict. This School did not have proper toilet facilities and the children are forced to go in to the close by jungle, with the risk of elephant attacks, or avoid coming to School. Having heard about this situation, we visited the School along with some Lions Clubs Members and we built two sets of Toilets one for boys and one for girls, each with six toilets.

Lanka Fundamental Rights Organization
Sri Lanka

We work to ensure fundamental rights from womb to tomb. There are three areas which are involved in violation of fundamental rights. Which are Health, Education and Wealth. We assist everyone to be Healthy, Educated and Wealthy. Under Health comes Environment, Water & Sanitation. We concentrate very much specially on these two as they are more connected to health. Our activities are future plans on Water & Sanitation are : 1) Ensure that all Schools have Water & Sanitation facilities 2) Build Sanitation facilities near Bus Halts where more Students, Girls & Ladies move. 3) Due to high population, the lands are blocked out and people build houses close by and build drinking water wells & toilets in the same land not knowing the ground water is being polluted due to the toilet waste. Therefore we promote and assist in making proper septic tanks without any leak. 4) We are planning to manufacture Sanitary Pads from natural Banana Trees.
