A Year Later: Students' Academic Performance Improved!

“Water was so scarce, we used to come with water to school each morning, which was tiresome,” said Cynthia, a 17-year-old student at Makunga.

Having clean water on the school campus has made a difference for her. “Getting water now is very easy since we just have to open the tap and water comes out.”

“This has helped me to stay in class enough and wash my hands without any problem, especially during this time of COVID-19. I have been able to concentrate on my studies. I have improved my class performance.”

This rain tank is enabling students of Makunga Secondary School like Cynthia to concentrate on learning and providing them the opportunity for a bright future.

Cynthia and her friends collect water from the rain tank.
