I hope this finds you well. I wanted to share with you in this report how your donations have helped contribute to a special project set up by the Singapore American School water fundraising project.
To date, the GVI construction team have installed 8 working toilets and 2 showers in a toilet block that has been unusable for almost two years. The children now have a place to wash and shower and access to flushing toilets. The solar powered water pump has been repaired and a steady flow of water now supplies the water holding tank that feeds the plumbing. With the remaining funds GVI will carry out more improvements to the toilet block and to the rainwater harvesting systems at the school.
In addition to the water problems experienced in the bathrooms, there was also the need to increase drinking water capacity at the school. Therefore a portion of the donation was assigned for purchasing a 5200 litre Rainwater Harvesting Tank, as well as cement, plumbing materials and a filtration system to complete the installation.
None of this would have been possible without the amazing fundraising efforts of the pupils at Singapore American School and your donations. GVI Fiji, the teachers and students of Ratu Meli School, School committee members, and local villagers have been overjoyed with the variety and scale of the improvements made possible by the donation provided by the Singapore American School
