Building in Leh I India I 2011
A year after the August 2010 floods in Ladakh, the children at Leh Girls School were still using a partially collapsed and dangerous toilet block. This project provided a replacement three cubicle toilet block and new hand washing facilities for the school. With the introduction of modern imported materials to the Himalayan region of Ladakh, many of the safe and sustainable construction practices appropriate to the region have been disappearing. In Ladakh, a desert region without a waterborne sewage system, the introduction of flushing toilets is wasting precious water supplies and increasing the risk of disease.
