Founded in 1982, Kankalay Islamic School is an infant, primary, and secondary school in Sierra Leone.
They currently have a water source on campus, but this source is a contaminated hand-dug well (a photo of this is included). This school is within reach of 1 of our implementing partners, Water4, NUMA Systems in Sierra Leone. Their team in Sierra Leone will be installing a Premium NUMA Now connection, a free first year of maintenance, and a hand washing station. The school would then be responsible to purchase water as they need.
Water4 NUMA piped water networks are designed to serve communities of up to 3,000 people. A NUMA network includes a solar-powered central NEXUS station with filtration & pumping technology, and up to four NODE extensions linked to the NEXUS to serve as satellite water distribution points.
H2O for Life is not a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) project implementer. We have partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) implementing WASH in Schools projects around the world. Our NGO partners match funds needed for each school project. We also have a generous donor that provides us with an interest-free loan that, along with matching funds, allows for many projects to be started or possibly even completed before total funds have been raised. In rare situations we reserve the right to reallocate funds to alternate project(s).
