A message from the community

The staff & students thank life water a lot for this precious give to the students by helping to have nice water. By the way, the pupils send their greetings to you and they are praying so that God can open more doors for you to help other schools in need of water. this school has 6 classes with up to 50 children per class if the school is school. The river was the old source. Mr Bedwell estimates there are up to 1600 people in this district. It is very helpful to have this well in the school yard as the next drinking water souce forces the children to go far and on a busy road with a lot of traffic. By Bedwell Matcurin (school caretaker)

Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)

ID # 25, Serial # 1335 Before they used to go to the river, some still go there, for the well is only 1 year old and they are not convinced the water is good. This well is cloudy. There are 2 other wells not too far away, but the village has about 1600 people, these 2 wells are overused.
