Isuka Primary School

Tanzania 346 beneficiaries Iringa

Project Complete!

Isuka Primary School is located in Isuka village within the Kilolo district of Iringa, Tanzania. The school has 346 students from nursery to standard seven and 8 teachers/staff members. Isuka faced the challenge of not having access to safe water for daily use.
The school has no access to safe water. They are currently fetching water from rivers and streams, which are shared with cattle and polluted. Time spent fetching water negatively impacts their school performance. The unsafe water has been causing many of the students and staff to become sick with stomach illnesses, diarrhea and cholera. Students are also at risk of being assaulted while fetching water from these sources.
Project Proposal: A shallow well dug on the school grounds

Having a shallow well at the school would provide a clean and safe water source for the students and staff to use. This well will provide clean, safe water that will reduce the number of students and staff that become sick with stomach illnesses, diarrhea and cholera. Students would also benefit by having more time for their studies improving their performance.
