Blessed, 11, recalled what life was like at Nyang'ori Primary School before her school’s rain tanks were implemented last year.
"We would be late to classes since we would waste time fetching water at the spring. The classrooms were really dirty, which made us sick sometimes. There was also sometimes very little and dirty water for drinking and handwashing," recalled Blessed.
But life is much more enjoyable for Blessed and the other students at Nyang'ori Primary School now.
"There is enough water to wash classrooms, for handwashing, for drinking, and I [am] no longer late to class," said Blessed.
Having ready access to water from the rain tanks has made a difference for Blessed, allowing her more opportunities to learn.
"I have improved greatly in my studies since I no longer waste time going to fetch water during class hours," concluded Blessed.
Thank you for helping Blessed access clean water and have time to study, opening her possibilities for a brighter future.
Right now, there are others just like Blessed in neighboring communities that desperately need safe water access. Your support will immediately go to work to provide a clean water project - and we can’t wait to introduce you to the next person you’ll help.
