Conclusion of School Water Catchment and Piping Project – Tanzania
This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Emilia Myers. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.
The project was to provide safe water to 200 students of the Kwemvumo Secondary School by reconstructing a water catchment tank, connecting it to the school, and running piping to various locations throughout the school.
Overall, the project ran very smoothly. The only major setback was that there were construction delays of 1.5 months due to the rainy season.
In addition to the managing the construction, Emilia held a seminar for students and teachers about increasing awareness and knowledge of water-borne diseases, and water users’ rights and responsibilities.
We are grateful to The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this successful project.
