Tortiza Village School near Gori still bears the scars of last year's conflict between Russia and Georgia.


As part of reconstruction efforts UNICEF and International Rescue Committee have installed a new water system and improved school sanitation with flush toilets.


The school was closed for nearly three months last year.


School authorities waited until buildings were safe to reopen and internally displaced people living in the school found alternative accommodation.


Now many pupils feel their school is much better.


SOUNDBITE: Natia Sirbiladze (9) School pupil
"I'm very happy now that we have a water tap and toilet, before we had to go to my classmate's house to bring water. I'm also very happy that we have now the toilet as well."


School children are also receiving training in good hygiene practices.
It's information they can share with their families at home or in centres for internally displaced people.


SOUNDBITE: Tamar Akhalkatsi, 14, School pupil
"Our awareness about various infectious diseases has increased. We also learnt what causes diarrhea. We didn't have a proper toilet or water to wash our hands or to drink."


Last year UNICEF played a leading role in coordinating emergency response in water, sanitation and hygiene and together with its partners provided more than 100-thousand internally displaced people with hygiene and basic family water kits.


UNICEF is also improving local water systems to prevent outbreaks of water-born diseases.
The water supply for the city of Gori, and surround communities, is now regularly treated with chlorine offering safe water for more than 50-thousand residents.


Repairing older water reservoirs and pumps is also helping to provide clean drinking water in remote villages.


SOUNDBITE: Benjamin Perks, UNICEF Georgia Deputy Representative
"It's essential in a conflict or a natural disaster that UNICEF and its partners ensure that every child and family has access to safe drinking water, basic sanitary conditions and the supplies needed to maintain basic family hygiene practices."


Georgia is a country where water is plentiful.


As people affected by the conflict rebuild their homes and lives UNICEF will continue working to boost hygiene and sanitation and ensure all communities have access to safe water.
