Migwani DEB Primary School (Kenya)

Kenya

Titre : Migwani DEB Primary School (Kenya)

Pays : Kenya

Date : 2022

Project Type : Rainwater Catchment
Program : Southeastern Kenya WaSH Program

Description
Migwani DEB Primary School depends on a 5,000-liter plastic tank for the water needs of its 266 students and 12 staff members. There is never enough to meet the water demand, even with rationing, so the tank runs dry. As a result, students are forced to bring their own water to school.

We will build a 104,000-liter rain tank for this school, making the other tank at the school that only holds 5,000 liters look tiny in comparison. Because of how rarely it rains in Southeastern Kenya, this tank’s large volume is designed to store as much water as possible during the seasonal rains, making more water available through the dry months. This water will benefit the students, teachers, and supplementary staff.

Parents will mobilize the materials needed for construction, including sand, stones, and water. They will also lend their strength and time to help with the construction. We will complement their materials with a skilled artisan to lead the project and provide the tools, lumber, metal, cement, and gutter system.

As soon as the tank has time to cure, it can begin collecting rainwater for the school’s use
