The Haverford Walk for Water

“On April 22nd, the second graders completed the annual Walk for Water service-learning project, done in partnership with H2O for Life, as part of their study of the continent of Africa. The project focuses on raising awareness about the global water crisis, conserving water, and helping build wells benefitting partner schools in Africa. We are so proud of our second-grade boys as they carried two-gallon jugs of water three miles (13 laps) around the track today as a means of simulating the hardship that many children in Africa endure in order to access clean water. Way to go, boys!”

Kalangba Junction SLMB Primary School

Sierra Leone 518 beneficiaries

SLMB Primary School is one of the oldest and most prevalent primary schools in Kalangba Junction and its surrounding communities. This school was founded by the SLMB mission with the main aim of providing primary education to children in Kalangba Junction community and nearby communities. This school provides an opportunity for children to attend primary school without needing to migrate to big towns.The school started with an enrollment of 160 boys and 40 girls. There were 3 male teachers and no female teachers at that time. The school started under a single building that was partitioned into the various classes. There was no latrine facility at the school when it was founded.Presently, the school comprises of three buildings that are built with cement bricks and roofed with zinc. The school buildings are painted in yellow at the top and brown beneath. There is a temporal fence made with local sticks at the from entrance of the school. There are dwelling houses around the school compound and each of those houses are shaded with huge mango trees. The environment of this school is tidy except for the two-latrine area at the school. The use of the latrine facilities without water at the school is leaving the area in an unpleasant situation. There is a large playing field at the back of the school building where the pupils and other youth in the community play football or do other sporting activities. The soil formation of the field and the school is encompassed with a sand which is quite comfortable for the children to play.
