We take running water for granted. Unfortunately, the daily reality for the kids at the Dream Home is the opposite. They obtain water from a water well. This process is labor-intensive and time-consuming. By installing plumbing, a solar-powered water pump and a water tank, the kids will benefit from piped water. This running water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids. They will be able to take and enjoy showers!
This project will solve the problem of the kids and staff at Dream Home orphanage having to obtain water from a well. Because there is no piped water supply up on the hill where the Home is located, they do NOT have access to the amenities and benefits of running water. Among other things, getting water for daily needs is time consuming and inconvenient. For them unfortunately, running water is a luxury!
So far, from previous projects here on GlobalGiving and other fundraising efforts, we have obtained and shipped a solar water pump and a water filtration system. We have also constructed a raised platform for the water tank. The funds from this project will purchase a water tank, connect the well to the tank, install the solar pump, and renovate the bathrooms.
This water supply will enhance cleanliness, providing better health and sanitation for the kids. This is a benefit that all children should enjoy and together we can make this a reality.
