Childhood health and well being are linked to the success they have in school. School children, who have access to clean drinking water and have adequate sanitation, increase their ability to learn as their health is not compromised by the devastating effects of water borne diseases. Good health is as essential to education as are text books. This project will provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education for Escuela Jose Trinidad located in Trojes, Honduras. It will have a direct impact on an estimated 20 school-aged children and their families. For years to come, the new students will have safe water to drink, a latrine to use, and hygiene lessons to learn. For students leaving school, the lessons they learned will carry with them through life. This school will be provided with a complete package of clean water, sanitation, hygiene education, teacher training and additional trainings that will cover hand washing, protecting water sources, menstrual hygiene, and personal hygiene.

In a little hut, in a little village, Alice Sayo was born into a large Maasai family. Through efforts of her mother and elder brother she was able to attend school and became a teacher. Her passion is to give other Maasai girls the chance for a brighter future. Without the opportunity to attend school, Maasai girls are married at a young age, and their opportunities are limited. Alice attended a teacher exchange program in the United States through the US State Department and convinced the teachers and students of James Madison University, VA to support her dream of creating a school for Masaai girls. Nasaruni Academy for Maasai Girls is the beginning of her dream. As Nasaruni grows, other donors, have helped support the school. H2O for Life staff and volunteers have visited the school, and see the potential that Nasaruni is bringing to the surrounding Maasai communities. We are proud to support this school through our partnerships with you!
