Khuluvi Primary School is located in Zomba District, Malawi. It has 19 classrooms and 14 teachers for a large enrollment of 1,487 students. Students walk to school from as far as 5km distance. The school was established by the Church of Central African Presbyterian, Blantyre Synod in 1973. 
The school has a non-functional borehole well on campus that use to serve the school and community. The pedestal of the pump is damaged and the pump is not working. When the pump was working it was being used by the community and the school. The school needs a new water source as learners have to get water at a distance of 2-3km to the nearest borehole. This compromises a lot of sanitation needs at the school. 
The current latrines need minor rehabilitation such as replacing doors for privacy and safety. Because of the high enrollment, there is a need to construct additional VIP latrines to meet the toilet to learner ratio. 
Our implementing partner, Freshwater Project International, will drill a new deep borehole water well, and install a hand pump with a drainage apron on campus. They also plan to provide 3 blocks of 4 stance VIP latrines for both girls and boys with locking doors. All of the sanitation facilities will have hand-washing stations adjacent, and more hand-washing stations will be located close to the classrooms. Students will also receive hygiene and hand-washing training. Additionally, students will receive a supply of Procter & Gamble Purifier of Water packets to educate them on the importance of clean water and hygiene and to purify water in their homes.
