It’s a cultural change for sure. Outdoor toilets with a difference. Pit toilets, or pit latrines, are the simplest and cheapest type, minimally defined as a hole in the ground. It’s a communal space with multiple toilets.
Welcome, welcome welcome. For my first post I’ll write about the place. You all know that Uganda is 4 times the size of Ireland. It’s on the equator, which means that water will go down the plug hole, anticlockwise on one side of the equatorial line and clockwise on the other…………. so they say.
Uganda is a landlocked country in eastern Africa, surrounded by Kenya, Sudan, DR Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania. It is roughly four times the size of Ireland and the supports a population six times that of Ireland. The capital is Kampala, located in southern Uganda. Ireland has had an embassy in Uganda since 1994
I am going to work for the Lwannunda Community Development Centre.
They have a website here: http://www.lwannunda.org
And the map here shows that, like home, there is enough green for any Irishman.
