Warm greetings from all of us on the frontlines of providing access to essential services to some of society's most vulnerable groups - children in schools and their communities. Over 21% of Sierra Leonean schools lack access to crucial water supply and toilet facilities, making it a significant burden on parents and their kids. With your support, we have been able to address these problems by starting with one school and a community at a time.
Christ The King Evangelical Lutheran Primary School in Bow Bow community, Western Rural District, houses pupils from six other catchment communities. We are 100% of rehabilitation work on a water facility that has failed for the past decade and whose collapse resulted in nearby neighborhoods retorting to fetching water from unprotected streams. Through initial support from The Project Solution, as earlier reported, and with the additional backing from Youth Partnership for Peace and Development, this facility has now been completed to assure safe and clean drinking water once again for the Bow Bow Community.
Please keep us in mind as we continue finding sustainable solutions. Shere, support and pass on this project within your networks.
Thank you all for the very generous supports as we introduce one of our newest partners helping us reach out to schools with access to conducive learning spaces through water supply, sanitation and hygiene services. Thank you to The Project Solution who is supporting this move. With this project will build and rehabilitate water supply, toilets and hygiene facilities in the Western urban district of Freetown; providing the enabling environment for children especially the girl child to learn and thrive. The project will provide handwashing kits to three schools, rehabilitation of toilet facilities, water supply storage as well as facilitating training in maintenance capacity of caretakers while reaching a total of 2500 children. $1,700 has so far been transferred to us for the commencement and we look very much to updating you beyond this point.
We are currently in the rains and potentials for an early start is a little slim but we are very sure all delivery interventions will come to fruition in the dries.
Please don't forget to keep sharing and letting the work out on this project and the needed contributions required to fully have it realized.
Hawa Kamara is a petty trader based in Freetown with an approximate business capital of $50. Hawa has decided to support our cause by donating SLL 70,000/US$10 as part of her desire to support specifically girls to continue their education for a brighter tomorrow.
"How I wished I had an opportunity to learn" was her motivation to providing such level of support because she believes that no one girl must go through those dark ordeals of not finishing their education in this modern age. Sadly enough Hawa do not have a visa or master card to donate to this cause but she feels more than glad to support in such an incredible manner. Together, please join us as we continue igniting change in supporting education for empowerment of children in Sierra Leone.
