Bringing water to Ntamya School

The situation in Tanzania remains concerning.  We are hoping that the new president will change the government's position on COVID and allow people to talk about it openly. We are continuing to urge all the communities we work with to take it seriously and practice social distancing, especially inside, and good hygiene.

However this is very difficult, particularly when access to clean water is so difficult.  Therefore we were so pleased, thanks to your donations, to be able to fund a bore hole and rope pump at Ntamya School. 

Prior to this the 500 students, and villagers from the surrounding villages had to walk three miles every day to collect water from a run-off of a river. A river that would often dry up. As well as being an unsafe water source that was shared with animals, this meant that girls (as it is usually girls collecting the water) would waste many hours a day in this task. 

Benedicto, our local rep in Kigoma has perfected a technique for hand drilling boreholes like this, and has trained local youth on how to make and maintain simple rope pumps. He has a list of many schools like Ntamya that still need access to water, including Rusesa.

So thank you for your generous donation to allow students in Tanzania to access clean water.
