Giving Update: Irobo Primary School

“We lacked clean drinking water before this tank was put up. We were forced to be carrying water from home or to fetch it from the streams during lesson times. It was so tiresome and an embarrassing thing to be doing every school day.”

“Now, we are drinking safe water which is treated before we use it. This has improved our health and confidence at school.”

“Our classrooms are also clean because the tank water has made it easy for us to maintain a high standard of hygiene every day.”

“We are also eating clean food because the school cook has enough water to wash our food and clean the utensils before serving us.”

Our class performance has improved in many subjects because we are able to come to school early enough without the worry of being sent for water or to carry books and water as we come to school. We have now tested the joy of learning at peace.”

“As students, our greatest achievement is to have access to safe and reliable drinking water within our school compound. The tank has also helped our school to build a new kitchen and extra classrooms using this water.”
