The Jopomwocho Primary School faced serious vandalism of school property including the latrine facilities. The school representatives attended an Accountability Dialogue at Sub-county level. They got motivated to tackle their school security problems rather than asking the pupils to express their satisfaction over the school sanitation. A School Security Committee was established as a result and political support was given. A watchman was recruited and the situation improved immediately, also as a result of more communication within the community. However, challenges on financing and handling the 'difficult' villagers remain.
