St. Luke’s Primary School is located in The Nembe Kingdom, Bayelsa State, Nigeria. The school provides education to 320 girls, 502 Boys and 12 teachers.
St. Luke's has an adequate water supply, but will receive filters for clean drinking water for each classroom. Currently the school has toilets that are non-operational and need to be rebuilt. This will include separate toilets for boys, girls, and teachers. Students and the community will receive hygiene education training focusing on the need to wash hands, use soap and keep facilities clean. Private Menstrual changing facilities will also be provided. As part of the implementation, student hygiene committees will be formed to keep facilities clean, and community committees will be formed to collect funds from parents on a regular basis to build a fund for repairs and ongoing maintenance.
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).
