Updates on Water is Life… Help us capture rainwater at Naivasha Highway Primary School!

Update posted by Paige Tantillo On Jun 29, 2020

Hello everyone! Hope all is healthy and well. It's been a challenging time for many people. Schools in Kenya have been out of session for quite some time but we do have some excellent news. Our latest update is very exciting! Are you ready?

We have received ALL funds needed to purchase and install the first rainwater tank at the school! It was installed in March, when LIz had the brilliant idea to ask the shop who stocks the rain barrels if we could put a deposit down, have it installed and keep raising funds until we collected enough to pay for it. After putting down a small deposit, in a short time we were able to raise the funds! So grateful and a million thanks to our incredible donors!

The other amazing news is that the tank is FULL OF WATER! It was the perfect time to install and catch the rain during the rainy season. The students will now have enough water to get them through most of the dry season.

Hello everyone! Thanks for following our rainwater campaign. As of 3 February, we're happy to report that Elizabeth and her team have been working hard measuring, purchasing supplies and adding the new gutters to the Naivasha Highway Primary School rooftop! Thanks to all of you for supporting this campaign!

Next steps will be to gather funds for the rainwater tanks!

Here are a few photos of the progress:

What a long stretch of guttering! Imagine all of the rainwater we will be able to catch now! Appreciate the support we have received thus far to help achieve our goal!
