“A society which cannot share or take seriously the pain of its children…is a society ‘condemned’ to remain a hostage to itself” (Pope Francis, 2015). Changing a child’s tomorrow starts today. Changing a community’s tomorrow starts today. Changing tomorrow’s environment starts today. Whatever you do today will impact our collective tomorrow. Together we can make a difference.
Irina Project Initiative, Inc., committed to improved toilet sanitation and hygiene one village at a time — build one toilet at a time. We work in collaboration with the Njinikom Municipal Council, under the leadership of Mayor Terence Bam, and the people of Njinikom to build a clean and healthy environment. Indiscriminate feces disposal continues to threaten the health standard and economic growth of the people of Njinikom/Kom. A clean and healthy environment is fundamental to achieve good health and foster economic growth and development. Improved sanitation enhances privacy, dignity, comfort, and clean environment when nature calls. We also provide health education that includes hand washing techniques through our volunteers to the community.
Our completed Irina public toilet in the Njinikom open market features 10 stalls – 5 for men and 5 for women including two showers. This toilet continues to serve the people in and around the market especially on the weekly market days when we have traders coming from neighboring villages/towns and as far away as the provincial capital of Bamenda. Today, we are happy to say that the first ultra modern public toilet is serving the intended purpose – provide a clean environment, eliminate disease causative factors, and improve health and economic outlook. This is a critical and state of the art improvement to the environmental sanitation situation in the Njinikom community.
Join Irina Project Initiative, Inc. to revolutionize our impoverished communities. Building one toilet-at-a-time equals to lifting one household, one family, one individual, and building one village at-a-time. Every dollar/cent counts. We appreciate your contribution.
