Field Notes

charity: water projects at schools like this one use clean water as a catalyst to improve the overall health of kids and the surrounding community. That means this school project includes a water source, but also hygiene training and a handwashing station.

Students here used to walk up to two hours to collect water for school. The water wasn't safe to drink and often made them sick. Thanks to your help, the students now have access to water right at school! And most importantly, the water is safe enough to drink.

Note: We wanted to show you that this community is serious about keeping their project safe, clean and functioning for years to come. They built a fence and a door on their own initiative, to prevent animals from contaminating the area and to show ownership of their new water source.

Note: Your project's plaque says 2010 because we had your plaque made right when we sent your funds to the field. But we don't consider a project complete until a Water Committee has been trained, the community has been educated on good hygiene practices and we've received the final report from our partners. Your project's official completion date is the one listed at the top of this page.
