Construction of Hope Bathroom
Construction of Hope started as a ministry to Cambodian migrant workers in Thailand, many of which who are children. Construction of Hope's work evolved to include education and holistic care of at-risk children in Cambodia as a prevention strategy so young people would have more opportunities to stay in their home country rather than take risky prospects to work abroad.
At the time of the project, the Construction of Hope center in Takeo province housed nearly 25 children and staff. The existing facility had inadequate toilet capacity to increase the population of the center to the next phase of growth to 50 children. EMI was contacted to design a septic tank for a new bathroom block, to assist in selecting a contractor, and observing construction. The actual bathroom building was designed by the contractor.
