Students at Olbolet Siana Hills Academy rely upon piped water from the nearby market where there is a 500L water tank. However, this source is very unreliable and often empty. They have been without water since the school year started and it will likely remain this way for several weeks, maybe even longer. When this happens, it forces students and staff to be absent while they fetch water from a nearby river, which is not safe for drinking, cooking, etc. but can only be used for cleaning and handwashing.
The school needs close to 500L of water a day for its handwashing program, cooking, cleaning and drinking. Staff at Olbolet Siana Hills Academy have a very strong commitment to teaching their students about the importance of proper hygiene. Having an adequate and consistent water supply will enable them to practice what they teach, and be a good example for the community.
- Installation of a 10,000 L water catchment tank
- Piped water from the tank to the school kitchen
- 2 handwashing stations
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).
