We were first contacted by Community Relief and Development Action (COREDA) about funding furniture for their primary school Community Relief Academic in Tiko. The school currently caters to 120 children of age 3-14, many of whom are orphaned, vulnerable and internally displaced. COREDA is currently constructing a new school building which is expected to serve 300 children upon completion. Upon further research, we found out the primary school needed funding for hygiene and sanitation buildings too so we decided to help get them access to safe drinking water.
We started this project in June 2020. The project involved drilling a borehole close to the school premises which can be used by the children and school community. Additionally, a storage tank was purchased and hosted on a platform next to the new school building and connected to taps which the children can access easily. We’re currently looking to construct a proper tap area to ensure the safety of the children.
We funded the drilling and installment of a borehole and storage tank to provide clean water to the school community.
The borehole will be used by 120 children. COREDA expects this to increase to 300 upon completion of the new school building.
We contributed 4.000 euros in total to this project.
