Dear Lifewater & Sponsor,

Silver Bells School & management give our heartfelt appreciation for the water project provided.  We know water is life and now we have every reason to rejoice for giving us Life in our School.

From this water well project we have received great improvement to our health:

1) clean drinking water

2) sufficient water for kitchen use

3) sufficient water for cleaning our school environment

You have really solved an ongoing problem we have had for a long time. Thank you.

Yours Faithfully,

Jeremiah Andale, Head Teacher of Silver Bells School

Project Summary

Most of the people in this area are farmers growing mostly potatoes and cabbage. Most of the farms have hand dug wells which are not protected, and other water sources like streams would be used. However these sources of water are unsafe, and continually dry up during the dry seasons. The students would have to spend all their time just looking for water instead of attending school. This well provides them with safe clean water allowing them to live healthier and obtain an education.
