92 rain catchment tanks are now producing safe, disease-freewater for indigenous schools and villages. The tanks also providesafe water for school lunches.
The school kitcneh at Nance Risco was closed for fourmonths due to lack of clean water. Packages of rice and lentils werestocked 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-freewater from our 92 rain catchment tanks. The tanks refill in the regulartropical 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.
