Community leaders in Santa Ana have identified latrine construction and improved sanitation as top priorities for the community.  In response to this concern, Houston Shoulder to Shoulder is working to identify households with the greatest need, and to work in partnership with community members to construct latrines and pilas (wash basins) and improve sanitation at the household level.  Houston Shoulder to Shoulder aims to enhance this work with community education on sanitation that includes the proper use of latrines and pilas to avoid contamination, and the importance of hand-washing.
