Conclusion of Giorgitsminda Water Project – Georgia

This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Katherine Steed. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

The project was to build a handwashing station outside of the public toilet at the school.

Katherine reports:

Appropriate Projects’ funding has allowed for the installation of a water tank, sink, faucet, and underground piping in the public school of Giorgitsminda, a small village over an hour away from the capitol city. There was previously no running water in the school.

5 men in my village, including my host father, installed the purchased equipment resulting in a clean water station for students and staff on the school campus.

The sink has allowed for students and staff to wash their hands and fill up their own water bottles for personal use.

Water is scarce in the small village and neighboring communities but with the funding from Appropriate Projects, the community members now have regular access.

We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding for this project.
