COLISO is the implementing agency for the project.

Madam Elizabeth Ama Asamoah, the headmistress of AKISSS said, the current poor state of toilet facilities of the school was a burden on her and that she was thankful to the funding partners for the facilities which would serve a student – population of 2,746.
