So far the tank constructed is 10ft down from the ground level and has gone 4ft above the ground. This means that the total height now constructed is 14ft and its diameter is 30ft. We intend to finish it at a height of 15ft all round and we are now at 14ft.
The main areas remaining now are the plaster and the cover. These areas will need more steel wires, cement and water proof cement. With the next tranche that you send we will purchase the materials for the next part. The tank will be complete within the next few months.
I want to sincerely tell you that this tank will so much solve the deaf children’s problem of water because they normally walk long distances to fetch water for their use in school, and then sometimes they are denied or pushed out and allowed to fetch last. They have all the reasons to be happy! Every morning before they go to class they must visit the project site to see if their tank is ready. I tell you they are so excited!
Thank you so much for giving water the first priority to these children.
