Nicholas reckons that Nyinampong is one of the poorest villages he’s ever seen, so there was great rejoicing last week when he was able to tell them that a sponsor had been found for their household latrines. The meeting was well attended, although many people were preparing for marketday the following morning. It was attended by opinion leaders including the queen mother
and the village elders.
Many people spoke of their appreciation of the sponsor’s generosity, and they promised to cooperate throughout the project, for which they will carry out all unskilled manual labour, such as digging 14 ft pits.
