Mbaale Primary School is in desperate need of clean water and sanitation. Students and teachers (460+ people) do not have any safe latrines (toilets) to ‘relieve’ themselves. This forces children to go to the bush or, to not come to school at all. A very passionate headteacher, along with parents, have tried to construct a temporary latrine, but it is collapsing and very dangerous. This is an urgent safety and health concern and the school will be shut down soon if a solution is not found.
Now more than ever, every American deserves the right to stay home and stay safe. Clean water makes that possible.
Now more than ever, every American deserves the right to stay home and stay safe. Clean water makes that possible.The families our implementing partner, DigDeep, serves are some of the most vulnerable to coronavirus in America. They struggle to wash their hands and bodies. They are forced to break social distancing to haul water. They live far from healthcare facilities. COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) has upended the lives of all Americans, and that includes our friends and family across the Navajo Nation.
Pader Secondary School’s only option for clean water is to buy it from a nearby trading center. For a school this large, the financial burden of having to buy water each day leaves them struggling to stay afloat. The school urgently needs a well of its own in order for it to stay operational and thrive.District: PaderSub-County: Pader Town CouncilParish: AcoroVillage: Lagwari EastBoys: 338Girls: 243
Project Proposal: 3 New latrines and handwashing station.
Our South Sudanese projects are quite unique from our others in the fact that they are not typically built at a school. These projects are built in villages with the plan that a school will form around that well in the future. The reason for this difference from our other projects is that South Sudan in its war-torn state is in desperate need for even the basic infrastructures to begin new communities. These South Sudan projects are not named because they are not typically schools yet at this point in the process. They will simply be a community well.
Crown Academy was founded in the Kissitown community of Waterloo, Sierra Leone in 2013. This primary and secondary school, which serves more than 750 students, has had many water challenges since its inception.
Ebukhayi Primary School was established by community parents in 1998. It was taken over by the government in 2013 when primary education was mandated free. With the additional government funding, the school population grew from 84 students to the 515 students it has today.Students learn mathematics, English, Kiswahili, science, religion, and social studies. There are extracurricular clubs, such as scouting and a young farmers club, that meet each Tuesday afternoon.The students arrive at school at 7 am when they start general cleaning chores. The students also use this time to go to the river that’s about one kilometer away. Some also bring water from home in the morning. They use some of this water to clean the classrooms before classes start at 8 am. They break for lunch at 12:40 pm and resume afternoon classes at 2 pm.
