The problem - and solution for 1 indigenous school

"Our absentee rate due to sickness fell from 70% to 15% after
you installed the rain catchment tank. Thank you. "

"Half our students were out sick at any one time.
Our absenteeism rate is now down
to less than 10%."
-- Delia Vergora - Pfrincipal Nance Risco school
92 rain catchment tanks are now producing safe, disease-free
water for indigenous schools and villages. The tanks also provide
safe water for school lunches.
The school kitcneh at Nance Risco was closed for four
months due to lack of clean water. Packages of rice and lentils were
stocked high but were unused --and unusable -- without safe water.
Principal Delia says, " the kids get nourishing food every day now,
thanks to the two rain catchment tanks you installed for us."
35,000 indigenous villagers and children now get safe, dissease-free
water from our 92 rain catchment tanks. The tanks refill in the regular
tropical rainstorms common to the indigenous communities.
The rain catchment systems are simple, with only one moving part - the faucet.
Surrounding villages use the safe water when school is not in session.
