On behalf of the children of Mnyakongo School and the neighbouring village families I thank Kitchen Table Charities Trust supporters for the grant of £7,500 to drill a borehole and install a hand pump at the school.
The school is in a remote area that has been stricken with drought for the past three years. At present villagers walk for miles to obtain water and children are required to bring their own water to school where possible. A borehole at the school will provide the 505 pupils and the teaching staff with drinking water and handwashing facilities in the newly installed toilet block thus improving health and hygiene. In addition, water will be readily available for the villagers nearby and for families of the children who live in the surrounding area.
The impact of this life changing water supply cannot be underestimated.
