Sanitation Challenge for Rural Schools

SECTION27 says while the DBE has made strides in addressing the sanitation challenge at schools, there still remains a backlog at rural schools

Advocacy group, SECTION27, says while the Department of Basic Education (DBE) has made strides in addressing the sanitation challenge at schools, there still remains a backlog at rural schools.

SECTION27’s Mark Heywood says the organisation is working with the department to get proper toilets at schools, adding that, “We have managed to work with the department to get some schools to get new toilets and we are glad about that, but as you know there are thousands of schools in Limpopo and hundreds more who have toilets that are either dangerous from a hygiene point of view or from a safety point of view.”

This comes after a six-year-old Grade R learner died after falling into a pit toilet at Chebeng outside Polokwane in Limpopo.
