Giorgitsminda Water Project – Georgia

Giorgitsminda, Georgia

Community Description
Giorgitsminda is a small village that is 45 miles outside of the capitol city of Tblisi.

The Giorgitsminda public school does not have running water for washing hands after using the public toilet.

Project Description
This project is to build a handwashing station outside of the public toilet at the school. Water will be run from the water source to the inside of the school building. Water will first be pumped to a new tank on top of the second floor of the building, and will be fed to the handwashing station by gravity.

Project funds will be used for materials, including a tank, pump, and piping.

The labor will be provided without charge by a professional plumber.

Project Impact
320 people will benefit from this project, including 300 students between the ages of 5-18 and 20 staff members.
