Fontein School, Port Elizabeth

Approximately 850 children between the ages of 6 and 16 attend the Fontein Primary School. Only around six toilets were available for these 850 children. One larger-sized toilet facility was completely defective and could no longer be used.

The goal of the Geberit team was to renovate the defective toilet facility and to install new toilets, urinals, and washbasins. In addition to the installation work, time was also planned to make contact with the schoolchildren and share activities with them that are related to hygiene or environmental awareness.

The Geberit team travelled to Port Elizabeth in October/November 2012 in order to put the plan into action.
