A durbar was held in Tanokrom MA Basic Schools in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis to offically handover 2 water-based institutional latrines constructed for the schools. The latrines come with overhead water storage tanks, hand washing sinks and urinals. The latrines are expected to significantly improve sanitation and hygiene practices in the schools. Earlier a multi-stakeholder agreement was signed with the School Authtorities, the Tanokrom Traditional Authority on behalf of the community and Local Manager of Ghana Water Company Limited in the Metropolis to see to the sustainability of the intervention.

Symbolically, the event also marked the handing over of all the 7 completed institutional latrines in Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis and Ahanta West District that were provided with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)  under the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) For Health Project in partnership with the Coca Cola Africa Foundation through their Water and Develepoment Alliance (WADA). This unique partnership was instituted by USAID under their Global Development Alliance.
