Dear Sir,

We as the students of St. Mathew's Junior Academy, would like to give our gratitude to you.  We appreciate the great work you have done for us of digging a borehole.  We would like to comment that we clearly saw your effort and willingness to make this project a success.

For sure it was of great treasure to us because we would not have much resources and finance to fund this project.  may god bless your work and shower you with greater ability such that you continue serving more people.

We also thank you for the hygiene education you offered to our pupils.  This has greatly improved the hygiene in our school. Thank you very much!

Yours Faithfully

Zachory Wangenye
