Clean water from day one

Take Harare in Zimbabwe, for example. In rural drought-prone areas, women and girls would often have to walk 12 miles or more just to fetch water, which placed a huge demand on their time and drained their energy. Without taps and toilets, the local primary school was struggling to stay open. 

"Learning time was lost searching for water and we experienced high staff turnover," explains head teacher, Confidence Chikanya.

The local authorities made three attempts to sink a bore hole to help keep the school open but each time, they had to abandon their efforts due to hard rock underground. But thanks to donations from sponsors like you, we were able to work with a team of local specialists who successfully installed a climate-friendly solar-powered bore hole and piped water network, with clean flowing water from day one.

Better health and education

With a clean water supply, the school was then able to install a hand-washing facility, as well as a vegetable garden, a thriving goat project and a fishery to improve the pupils’ hygiene and diet. 

What an amazing difference clean water is making here and will continue to make! Yet many more children worldwide still don’t have access to safe and clean water. 

Access to clean water couldn’t be more important right now. In order to stop the spread of coronavirus and other diseases, everybody needs to be able to practice good hygiene.
