Summary

St John's is in serious need of improvements to its water system. It has four tanks: one regularly overflows; another is leaking and has a broken base; another is completely broken; the last is on a very weak stand so cannot be filled. As tanks are filled by an electric pump the school does not have water during power cuts. There is also no water in toilets and laboratories. Providing clean, reliable water would greatly improve student welfare, wellbeing, and academic results.

Challenge

With so little water storage, students must collect all water for drinking, washing, and lab experiments from a stream used by local livestock. Preventable water-borne diseases are rife, so students often miss lessons.

Solution

Replace the existing main tank with a larger one to reduce the amount of wasted water. Repair the leaking and broken tanks. Build a stronger base so the final tank can be properly filled.

Long-Term Impact

Immediate improvement of student health and welfare. Less time spent collecting water and reduced absences due to illness will give students more time in class, improving academic results. A sturdy stand will enable the tank to hold more water without any risk of collapse.
