Water connection comes to Precious Vision

The team in Kenya are currently hard at work installing a new water connection for the Precious Vision School thanks to support for this project. So far the pipes are being laid and we have installed a tap at the front of the building and a water tank. Unfortunately even the mains water is unreliable so having a tank to store water will ensure a consistent supply.

This seemingly simple improvement will have a huge impact in the school saving both time and money.

The water connection will save on time as the children will no longer need to carry out the chore of collecting water in jerry cans from the local village tap. This means they can spend more time in the classroom learning.

The connection will also be more cost effective that the current system. Our community and school leader Madam Jane forecasts that the monthly amount spent on water will decrease.  In addition it will also reduce her work load and she will no longer need to constantly monitor water levels which she is very happy about!
