Clean Water for Schools in Kenya

by Utengo Ministries
Nov 25, 2012

Construction Phase Complete

The construction phase of the Nyakome water tank is finished! The only task left is to install and route the gutters from the roofs to the tank opening. These will come from the building that is behind the tank in the top picture.

There has been a delay in completing the tank. There was a national strike by teachers which lasted most of September. During this time, public school teachers were not allowed in schools and the pupils (who carry the water for construction) were not in attendance. This one-month delay is the reason why the gutters are not yet installed. 

We are very happy that soon we will not have travel to the river to get our water. I will let you know as soon as the tank is ready to be used. Thank you again for caring so much for the well-being of the children at Nyakome School for the Deaf.
