Itwaga Primary School is in Mgama village, Iringa rural district about 55 kilometers from Iringa town. The current school population is 225 girls, 219 boys and 7 teachers/staff members.
The school has a very challenging situation with no access to safe, clean water. Their current water sources are the river which is 2 kilometers away from the school and old hand dug wells scattered around the village. The water from the river and most of the old wells is contaminated and unsafe. During the rainy season waste from around the village is washed into the river, which pollutes the water even more. The students have to fetch water daily which is used for drinking, cooking porridge, cleaning, and washing up after using the toilets. Class time is wasted fetching water, causing students to miss important lessons and valuable learning time resulting in poor performance on their exams.
Project Proposal: Shallow Well
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.
