The water source for this project is located at the Afang Lang Ceesay Quranic memorization and Islamic studies school. The school was established in 2005 and has a total of about 500 students.
Despite the success made over the years, the school is faced with serious infrastructural challenges, most importantly the lack of clean portable water. There is only one open shallow well in the school used by the children and the community but the condition of the well which surely impacts water quality is far from desirable.
YOUR DONATIONS provided water filters, the arrival of which generated a lot of happiness and hope for the students and the community at large.
NOW, funds are need for a water lifting system to use the water filters. The community is eagerly awaiting this pump to enable them to enjoy clean potable water -- a life-giving necessity for men, women, children and animals.
To those of you who have donated to this project, we once again thank you for your kindness and help. Your continued support will provide clean water to the school and village to ensure that NOONE dies as a result of drinking contaminated water.
Water filtration units have been sent to our project in Gambia. Now 150 children will have clean fresh drinking water with the water units that were custom made for Gambia West Africa....due to the generosity of donors for Airline Ambassador's and Clean Water Foundation through our GlobalGiving Project. We are supporting children and their families to have clean fresh drinking water in Gambia West Africa.
We also celebrated sending water units to Gambia Africa at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Center a few weeks ago on our 5-year Anniversary. NOTE the photo taken at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation where we featured one of our custom-made water units that went to Gambia, Africa We continue to fundraise for more water units to supply children and their families with clean fresh drinking water.
Children will be taking the water home to their families. They will be educating their families and the community about clean fresh drinking water and how important it is. Thus, they will be good will ambassadors in the communities of Gambia West Africa ...THANKS TO YOU! We appreciate your continued support for this important project.
GREETINGS from Gambia. Below is a photo of how our special custom-made water unit and filter will look. Each unit can provide 50 people clean fresh drinking water. These units operate by gravity feed so you don't need electricity which will maket them user-friendly for schools and clinics. These are also reverse osmosis units.
We are continuing to fund-raise to provide 30 water units and filters that will supply 15 thousand people with clean fresh drinking water that will help them regain and maintain good health. Presently the quality of water supplied by the Nation Water Company is reported to be well below standard and is currently a subject of Parliamentary Committee Enquiry.
Leon McLaughlin of the Clean Water Project, is working with customs to ensure the safe delivery of these units.
Your continued support of this project is most appreciated. We still need donations to purchase the amount of water filters needed. Thank you in advance for continuing to care about the people of Gambia. They send their heartfe;tthanks and blessings to you!
