This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Jacci Zappa.

The Peace Corp has confirmed that the rainwater catchment project has been completed and the water tanks have been installed.  PCV Jacci had to leave Tanzania for health reasons, and it took a while for us to confirm that the project had been completed successfully.

This project’s successful outcome will lessen the burden of fetching water, giving students more time to study. The ample supply of drinking water will improve their health and wellbeing. In addition, the water they now have for gardening will create an abundance of produce, and the school will be able to sell the excess vegetables to enable them to decrease school fees.

We are proud to have been able to make this happen.
