Zappa is in Asaba, located in the terrace of the Niger River. The school has a population of 302 girls, 300 boys and 28 teachers.
Zappa School currently has no water supply. Students are requested to carry water to school, but often students do not have an adequate source at home. The school has 4 pour flush toilets that are not functional and need to be replaced. There are no hand washing stations, and a hygiene education program has not been implemented.
The project plan calls for construction of a borehole well with storage tank, rehabilitation of the current toilets to make them functional and construction of 4 additional toilet compartments for boys and girls with the addition of urinals for the boys. They also plan to build hand wash stations, implement hygiene training, and create hygiene school committees and parent groups to oversee maintenance and sustainability.
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).
