St. Paul Partners plans to install an electric pump to the salvageable well and pipe water throughout the school. The school has already purchased a 2,000 L tank and has constructed a 2.5 m tower near the high point of the grounds. The school is connected to the electric grid and has said they would be willing to pay for the extension of the electric lines to connect the grid to the pump. This investment shows that the school is committed to this project and the difference it will make. The implementation of a water system at Kitelewasi Secondary School will have a very positive impact on the education of its students as well as the surrounding village. The water this well will supply far exceeds the demand of just the school, it could also be possible for villagers around the school to get water for a fee. This will contribute to the sustainability of the water system, as the school will have income for any necessary maintenance and repair.
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).
