Chiatura, Imereti Region, Georgia
Chiatura is a small town located in the beautiful, temperate Imereti region of Georgia. When accounting for all of its surrounding villages, Chiatura has a population of around 20,000. The main industry is the mining of manganese, a silvery-grey metal which resembles iron.
There are nine public schools in the area. Chiatura Public School #4 has approximately 360 students (grades 1-12) and 42 teachers. The 4-story school lacks basic water and sanitation.
The teacher’s bathroom, located on the first floor of school, lacks running water, electricity, and ventilation.
Piping will be installed to bring water from the source to the bathroom. Water will then be supplied to the toilet and sink. Electricity will be made available in the bathroom for lighting. A small window will be cut into the wall for ventilation. A small soap box will be installed to be used for handwashing.
All of the work will be done by the father of one of the students at a reduced rate.
Water Charity funds will be used to purchasing the pipe, a new sink basin, and the electrical fixtures, as well as to pay for the labor.
360 students and 42 teachers will benefit the project, as well as those who visit the school for meetings and events.
This project represents an important step toward providing the school with a basic level of hygiene and sanitation.
