A Year Later: More time in class for learning!

Last year students who attended Kasongha OIC Vocational School in Sierra Leone struggled to find enough water to meet their daily needs, missing valuable time in class learning.

"Actually, before this time, we usually [had] a lot of constraints in this institution because of the lack of water facilities. Also, when [went] outside the school compound to fetch water, it [was] hard for [us] to fetch water due to the distance," said 20-year-old Isatu.

But once we rehabilitated the well on their campus, things changed, making water easily accessible anytime they needed it.

"Now we are so happy about the completion of this well because, since the time when [you rehabilitated the well], we now have enough water to do our training and the practical works," said Isatu. "We now stay in the school compound because there is pure water and safe drinking water closer to us."

With water available anytime they need it, students are now able to reserve their time and energy for learning, which hopefully will lead to brighter futures.
