Friends Primary School Givogi was established in 2009 by a church sponsor that donated the land. It started with just a preschool class and has slowly grown over the past years to now have 326 students from preschool to standard eight. But the growth has been slow because of high poverty levels in this area.English, Kiswahili, mathematics, science, social studies and religious studies are the subjects taught here.There are four incomplete classrooms and two semi-permanent (mud) classrooms that are not in good shape. Standard six and seven children have their lessons in the same classroom, separated only by papyrus reeds. A circular grass-thatched temporary gazebo structure has been built to serve as the staffroom for the teachers.
Kalonga Secondary School in rural Malawi with an enrollment of 227 students and only 8 teachers.
Oguola College Secondary has a student population of 321 girls, 389 boys and 13 teachers/staff. The school desperately needs implementation of a clean water source, rehabilitated latrines and a hygiene training program.
Every day, students from Patrivia Primary School make the long walk to a protected shallow well and wait half an hour in line to collect water more than a kilometer away from their classrooms. Despite how time consuming and difficult this process is- students must walk along a steep slope through dense vegetation to reach the well- it’s the fact that the young children must cross a busy main road unaccompanied to reach the water source that is most concerning. Contributing even further to the problem is the well’s inadequate water supply, which regularly runs dry throughout the year. Although Patrivia Primary School acquired a 400 liter rainwater collection tank to help meet its water needs, with roughly 200 students and teachers on the premises, it simply isn’t enough. With the addition of a 10,000 liter rainwater collection system, the school’s students and teachers will have convenient access to clean, safe drinking water.

Project Proposal: 3 New latrines.
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.
Already beneficiaries of 40,000 liters of rainwater harvesting, but in dire need of latrines. At Ssango, there is a small population of special needs children as well who need safer access to a toilet. By building two latrine blocks (10-stances) with handicapped accessibility and handwashing facilities, hygiene, sanitation and health will be changed forever.
