Thank You Rotary of Northfield Minnesota for Our New Clinic Latrine!

Look at this beautiful latrine and hand washing station! 
I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to the members of the Northfield, Minnesota Rotary Club for making this project possible. Truly, without their financial support this would not have been possible. 

Togo is one of the pilot countries for a Rotary International partnership and while it was a rocky start (what Peace Corps project doesn't have some bumps and troubles along the way?) all of us here in Zafi are just so proud and happy to have this new latrine at the clinic. 

The clinic serves a population of about 8,000 people and there's about 35 daily visitors in addition to weekly baby weighings and pre-natal care sessions which bring in anywhere from 25-45 new or expecting mothers.
