This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:

PROPOSED REHAB PROJECT

The proposed Indangalasia primary school water project rehab is a school compromising of pupils and teachers from Koyonzo location.

The school owns a hand dug well that was dug by the parents associations. The well was functional until 2007 when it broke down. Due to lack knowledge, the school water committee dumped the project and was further vandalized by unknown people. Since then, the school pupils have been suffering going back to the stream looking for water. Due to this, the school together with its management committee approached BWP to assist them rehabilitate the well so as to enable them access clean and safe water.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE.

 The Indangalasia primary school and the whole community access water from a stream. The stream dries up during the dry season. The stream is not protected hence contaminated. The turbidity value measures 80.

POPULATION

The School is a mixed day with an enrollment of 750 pupils, 17teachers and 4 non- teaching staff. The community a round records 65 households with an average of 7 people per house.

SANITATION AND HYGIENE

There are 10 pit latrines that are washed 2 times a week, clothes lines are not available for the community to hung their clothes on. Hand washing points and detergent soap is not available outside some of the toilets. There is compost pit where liters are burned from.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

The project will benefit the pupils of this School and community members.

ASSESSING THE NEED

The Bridge Water Project has seen the need to rehabilitate the borehole so as to enable the pupils and the community  to have access to clean and quality water for their domestic use and to improve their sanitation and hygiene standards.

WATER COMMITTEE

The  BWP Staff before implementation of this project will ensure that capacity building is done to the water committee that will manage the water supply to avoid sustainability crisis in future.

Partner Profile

Bridge Water Project has been funded by The Water Project almost since they got their start in 2007.  This local Kenyan NGO works directly with the communities and neighbors they know well.  Building relationships with these villages and the local government helps ensure that the water projects we fund are sustainable in the long term.

BWP works to repair up to four wells for every new one they install.  In this area of Kenya, many old and broken down water points still exist.  We have found that restoring these water points and establishing new plans for maintenance and monitoring, is quite cost effective.

We work closely with partners like BWP to strengthen their teams, through professional development growing their impact and quality of work over time.  Your donations make it all possible.
