Conclusion of Elderslie School Water Project, Phase 2 – Jamaica


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

The project was to rebuild the handwashing fountain structure and the water supply system at the primary and elementary school.

Chris reports:

This project was a success. Using local artisans, the school principal and groundskeeper worked to remove the cement structure around leaky piping in the water fountain. The old pipes were removed and new pipes were installed.

The cement structure was then manufactured again back over the new piping. The fountain was then in working order without wasting precious water through leaks. Students were able to use the fountain for handwashing prior to meals and throughout the day.

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