Our new school facilities at Linda Community School are now also used by the children of Homework Club. The school currently relies on mains piped water, which is intermittent at best. When the water gets turned off there is no drinking water or water to flush the toilets and the school has to close for the day. A vegetable garden has also recently been introduced to support the feeding programme: it also needs watering. We are now appealing for funds to dig a bore hole and install a pump at the new school site. This will provide drinking water in conjunction with our water purifier systems, ensure the toilets can flush, assist the vegetable garden and reduce the school water bill. This will assist the 470 children of Linda Community School as well as dozens of children from Homework Club. UPDATE: we have now raised enough for the drilling of the bore hole and a hand pump which have now been completed. We still need funds for the water tank and stand. Thank you!
