Sanitation is among the most urgent concerns in Haiti following the earthquake. UNICEF estimates that 1.1 million displaced people require emergency latrines. In the short term, UNICEF and other organizations plan to install nearly 13,000 latrines by April, and another 21,000 within six months.


To help achieve this goal, UNICEF has enlisted its partner IDEJEN to construct 1,000 sanitary blocks, which include latrines, showers and hand-washing facilities.


IDEJEN was launched here seven years ago to provide an education and job training for young people between the ages of 15 and 24. IDEJEN's Guerda Previlon recently showed the new sanitary blocks being constructed.


SOUNDBITE (English), Guerda Previlon, IDEJEN: "What you are seeing here is a sanitary block made by IDEJEN youth. You can see them in the back. So those are the ones who built it with the help of the engineer. The engineer back there. So in this sanitary block we have three units (latrines). You see? So this is made by the youth. And you use this cover to make it more comfortable for the users. And I can open this for you. And this is the other one. So all of this is made by the youth – by the IDEJEN youth. We are going to install this sanitary block in the camps. And we have to add to the sanitary block a water point for washing hands. So they are building this now. This is the tank to put the water. This is the frame to put the tank, so we are building that."


SOUNDBITE (English), Guerda Previlon, IDEJEN: "And we need to build also the shower. And then we'll take care of everything, in terms of management of the sanitary block, in terms of management of the excreta and in terms of evacuation of used water. In terms of education on hygiene and sanitation on the level of the camp."


IDEJEN is enlisting the help of 1,200 young people to build the sanitary blocks, including 22-year-old Fidel Frantzy.


SOUNDBITE (Haitian Creole), Fidel Frantzy, IDEJEN: "I know that people need this service. This is a rewarding project for me because we are helping people who urgently need toilets. You know, it's not the only sanitation project we're working on. We have a team of youth that clean the streets around the camps, too. I'm so proud to be a part of this effort in Haiti – to help other young people, and the community."


IDEJEN says it will install the first sanitary block in a camp within the next week, and the units have a long expected life span.


SOUNDBITE (English), Guerda Previlon, IDEJEN: "It can last for at least two years. Using it now
