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.
