Chief on a remote indigenous island says, " Our children are in school studying, not at home sick."You made an old man happy! Thank you."
Principal Velkis Quiroz of Cristobal Island says: "up to 70% of our kids were out sick from time to time. Now, it's less than 10%"
Principal Candice of Solate island says: " Our drop - out rate was high. Kids were out sick, fell behind and dropped out. i expect all our kids to graduate this year."
We're now about half-way through the school year down here in the indigenousareas of Paname, and the results are coming in.
We've been busy. Five tanks at five schools in five days is a torrid pace,.but we're in a race against time, with children's health at stake.
Too many schools still rely on water from polluted streams &contaminated "wells," which are just holes at the base of hills. When it rains, pollutants flow into the wells.
Twenty-one schools are on our "must do soon " list. Over, 3,000children in those schools need safe water.
We're an all-volunteer charity. No one receives a salary or compensation.
Thank you for helping indigenous children & schools.
