Village Meeting Hall Bathroom Project - Thailand
Non Khun District, Sisaket, Thailand
Ban Phrong Village is located in the district of Non Khun in Sisaket Province of Northeastern Thailand.
The village has a community meeting hall, which is often used for a variety of events including health talks, government meetings, meetings to prepare for local festivals, and senior group meetings. Most villagers attend a function at the meeting hall at least monthly.
Currently there are no bathrooms in the meeting hall, and people must use the toilets in the surrounding homes, if available.
The project will be carried out under the direction of the Non Kor Sub-District Administration Office.
Local villagers and health volunteers have already completed a plan for creating the bathrooms and will work together on the construction.
Project funds will be used for purchasing materials, as the villagers have agreed to undertake the labor themselves.
Peace Corps Volunteer Directing Project
With the bathrooms installed, community groups, including those groups making local products, will be able to meet and work in a clean and safe environment.
This project follows up on the prior project successfully completed by PCV Sarah Brooks, the Non Khun School Water Project – Thailand. The villagers of Ban Phrong were inspired by that project, and decided start one of their own.
