Dollschino are happy to support
Kiteta Girls Secondary School in Kenya.
-
As the school is relatively big, there is a huge need for water. There is a borehole, but the water from there is salty and cannot be used for drinking or cooking – so the girls have to fetch water for themselves.
-
This means that most days, they need to walk 3km there and back to the nearest source, the Ngwani River. This water is dirty, but the young women have no choice other than to use it. During the dry season, the river dries up and then, the school buys water, at considerable expense.
-
This creates a situation where the girls are often sick and miss their classes. The task of fetching water takes time and again classes are missed, to the detriment of education overall. The school is also not developing as it should, as money is being spent on water instead of new classrooms, books or science equipment. Overall, the students are not able to realise their potential.
-
To change this situation, Just a Drop will provide a water tank for the school to provide year round safe and clean water, a tank which harvests water from the school roof during the two Kenyan rainy season.
-
They will also provide 3 hand washing stations and sanitation and hygiene education to every student on how best to use the water to stay healthy.
