Giving Update: Majengo Primary School

“Before the project, access to clean and safe water in this school was very difficult.”

“It was so tiresome and frustrating drawing water from the unprotected well that was within the school compound. The water, being drawn manually, posed a hazard to us as we became exhausted when drawing it and consumed a lot of class time as the water table had really gone down.”

“Furthermore, the water was also dirty with a foul smell. But we were forced to consume it, and unfortunately, a majority of us would be absent due to being sick.”

“Drawing water from the rainwater harvesting tank is the greatest achievement. It’s so easy to access water and the drawn water is clean and safe for consumption.”

“Absenteeism is the problem of the past, and better academic performance is our portion.”

“We now enjoy total concentration on academic lessons, timely syllabus coverage, and extremely better academic performance.”
