BENEFITING: weCare Initiative for Africa
weCare Africa is currently working on rehabilitation of Ikot Etene Primary School located in an impoverished village in Akwa Ibom State in Southern Nigeria. This primary school which serves over 200 local students is in need of urgent repair, water supply and adequate sanitary facilities. We have decided to tackle the most important aspect of this project first which is installation of a potable water / borehole system so that the children have clean water to drink while in school. Currently, the students have to leave the school to get water from a nearby stream which is unsanitary as the same stream is used by fellow villagers for bathing and washing of foods and clothes. This is also a major distraction from their studies.
We all know how important access to clean water is so just imagine how much this will change the lives of these children even if it's for a few hours while they are at school. We also plan to donate water bottles so that every child can take clean drinking water back home every day.
Our goal is to raise $4000 which will cover the cost of installing the borehole, an overhead tank for water storage and a small generator for pumping water. We would like to install this borehole before the kids return back to school in September 2016. We will be filming the entire project so you can see the direct, immediate impact of your contribution.
