This school is found in the Msundwe community, in Traditional Authority Malili in Lilongwe west (approximately 30km from the capital city). The school has an enrolment of 508 students, and 6 teachers with a catchment population of 1,783 people.
The school has no water source point for safe drinking, no hand washing facilities, and poor sanitary facilities.
This project will be a comprehensive Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project (WASH) Project including 4 double pit latrines (2 boys, 2 girls, 2 teachers), 2 urinal stations (1 boy, 1 girls) and 4 hand washing facilities (2 boys, 2 girls). It will also include hygiene training for the students and teachers and will include the planting of 100 trees around the water point and 4-5 trees for each student’s family. It also includes distribution of P&G’s PUR packs to each family. PUR Packs is the water purification technology in a powder, an amazing innovation that quickly turns 10 liters of dirty, potentially deadly water into clean and drinkable water.
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).
