Kibera Schools

Kenya

Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) has today announced the expansion of Africa’s first aerial water piping system for less privileged communities in partnership with Safaricom Foundation. The partnership aims to scale up the provision of clean and accessible water to 84,000 people in the informal settlement of Kibera, most of whom have been forced to rely on predatory private water vendors for their daily water needs.

Abundant Grace Junior School

Uganda 40 beneficiaries

This school just opened in 2016, but there is no water source at the school for students or staff. The students fetch water from a “traditional well” – a dug pit in the ground that 200 other community members also rely on for water each day, and in the dry season, water supply is limited. The water is polluted, surrounded by dense vegetation, and located at the bottom of a steep slope. For these young primary school students, fetching water is dangerous and takes them away from time spent learning in class.

Batey 7 Primary School

Dominican Republic

A batey is a word that defines a community of people who live and work in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic. Since the rapid expansion of the sugar industry in the 1930’s, Haitian migrant laborers have been brought from their homeland by the busloads to work in these fields. These migrant workers are offered extremely low wages ($3.50 per day) and withstand harsh working environments in the hot, vast fields.
