Little Flower Pre School
Little Flower is a nursery school located within Kilolo district of Iringa, Tanzania. The school has a total of 238 students, along with 9 teachers and staff members. As with many villages and schools in Iringa, the lack of available safe water for Little Flower School is a major problem.
The school sometimes can pay for jugs of water but they usually cannot afford to do so. During the rainy season, the staff, parents, and sometimes young students waste a lot of time fetching water for domestic uses including drinking, cleaning, and cooking. During the dry season, they often go without adequate water at school.
The overall objective of this project is to provide access to clean water for the students at Little Flower School. Our implementing partner, St. Paul Partners, will install a shallow borehole well, with a hand pump, located directly on the school compound. This will ensure students have access to enough safe water which will lead to more time in the classroom studying. Access to safe water will also have a significant impact on the health of the students, teachers and neighbors around the village.
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).
