Clean water project for Kafuro school
Our special greetings to the children at Liss Junior School.
We have always felt proud to speak to you on this blog and receiving your letters is always amazing and strengthens our feeling for you love and care.
Thanks very much always for your kindness and generosity always to have our projects supported.
Our challenge is water. We have always fetched water from lake Kyamwiga, due to limited resources, most children have always drunk the said contaminated lake water directly.
Lake water contain lots of impurities which include fish remains, human remains and wastes and other lots.
This water was sometime back tested for filtration by Life Abundant Africa in 2016. ( Life Abundant Africa is a charity foundation giving aid to children that was founded by Yowasi Byaruhanga and Claire Green helping children to achieve education)
This project considered water filtration for communities as our piped water was not reliable but the water company has at least improved the water now.
This piped water is not very pure for drinking but it is very far far better that lake kyamwiga water which contains lots of impurities tap water here is sometimes treated 74 % making it far safer for use and when boiled it will not change the color like what Kyamwiga lake water would do, this same water have caused lots of water bone diseases and more to that it has claimed lots of lives of people in the community as even crocodiles are in the water and other aquatic lives.
In this regard, Clean water project for Kafuro is here to solve the challenge in our school as for the first time in history, Kafuro Primary School will have piped water.
This will reduce the rate at which Kyamwiga lake water is being drunk and this automatically reduces the water bone diseases, deaths by children going to fetch water and even deaths by animal and snake attacks on the community population.
Having piped water in Kafuro Primary school will help us to save more study time, this is because all the water used in school is fetched by pupils. This ranges from water to reduce dust in classes as they are not cemented to water used for cooking for staff.
Having realized the challenge as one of the causes of poverty, school drop outs and even late coming to school and other discontentment of both children and all people in the community.
Having observed and understood the challenge, Yowasi spoke to the community leaders and advised them to keep the community encouraged to boil the water they tend to use and filter as much as they can.
In setting a permanent solution, Liss junior school was contacted through Adam and the Head teacher ( great leader)
All the community of Kafuro was very much excited to hear about Liss Junior school Accepting to help to solve this challenge.
immediately a meeting with school committees was held to identify who does what, authorities from National water and Sew erage cooperation were invited. They did specify the bills of quantities basing on the distance. This was reduced as the guardians and community leaders suggested to dig the trenches of pipe and then lay the pipes and again cover the pipes.
An idea was raised to put a sign post showing “CLEAN WATER PROJECT DONATED BY LISS JUNIOR SCHOOL” Or any other right suggestion by the children of Liss Junior school as this is a generous project to their friend in Kafuro Primary School.
The national water and sewerage cooperation offer to the school was geared by the invitation to the meeting that they realized the need for water by Kafuro Primary school and they did mention that it is short to consider.
They mention that it expires in Mid May 2018.
We thank you especially the children at Liss Junior School, great special thanks to the headteacher for the super quality leadership and generosity to Kafuro Primary School, all the staff for your time and generosity and time, Adam we can not thank you enough for your super links,
