A Year Later: A New Dining Hall and an Emphasis on Cleanliness

“It was a challenge to keep the classes clean, get clean drinking water, and water was never enough to cook the meals as we would always buy, which was expensive,” said Evans.

“Now, the school does not strain to get water for use thanks to the water tank. The water can last the entire term and serve all the school’s needs, such as drinking, cooking, cleaning, and construction projects. Students can learn in clean classrooms and their meals are prepared/served on time.”

“The school is now able to cut costs that were initially spent on purchasing water, we have channeled the cash to infrastructural development, such as the completion of the dining hall.”

“Our greatest worry would have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic, due to inadequate water supply. However, the tank gave us assurance that we can keep our students safe here in school. We were able to administer a handwashing culture with soap and clean water.”

“In addition, with the availability of water, we have managed to sustain a good, conducive learning environment for our students by improving our hygiene and sanitation standards such that they can comfortably concentrate on their studies.”
