The school does have 16 adequate latrines which they will be able to keep much cleaner by having a water source on the grounds.
Having a well at the school will provide a clean and safe water source for the students, teachers, and neighbors to use. This will help reduce the number of students and staff members that become sick with stomach illnesses and diarrhea. Students will also benefit by having more time for their studies and their performances will improve.
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).
