Conclusion of Aeolus Valley School Water Project – Jamaica

This project has been successfully completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Danielle Porreca. To see the history of the project CLICK HERE.

The project was to provide water for the bathrooms at the Aeolus Valley School.

Danielle reports:

Aeolus Valley’s water project is complete. We purchased a Truper 1 HP pressure pump from a hardware store in Kingston, and went to a community hardware store for the fittings.

A community plumber installed the pump and a community mason covered the exposed pipes with cement. The toilets and sinks now have a regular water supply.

Danielle tells about how the project was received:

The new school year has started and Aeolus Valley has fully functioning bathrooms. The students were excited to find the bathrooms open on the first day of school. All the students wanted a turn to wash their hands at the sink. Thanks to the newly installed pump the bathrooms will continue to stay open for the students.

We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust and family of Danielle Porreca for providing the funds for this project.
