Water Project 2012
At Naalarami every drop of water counts.
Every year in Africa is hard, this year its worse! The lake on the right was held back by a dam wall, the rains this winter broke the wall and the picture on the right is as of May. By now even the puddles are gone.
The school is down to its last water butts of water and by August all the water will be gone.
If you can give even the smallest amount it will change lives in this tiny school in Africa. For every pound you give you supply 10 litres this and every year, the more you give the more good you do.
With 400 children in the school our plan is to ensure that each child has water all year round.
At the moment the water is often gone from August to November.
Our plan is to supplement the existing 4 rainwater collection tubs aiming for 10 initially then doubling that capacity to 20.
With 20 there will be no problem at the school again and every child will have water all year round.
Imagine that! Please help and donate.
we have £296 towards this £500 drum.
Each tub costs £500 and holds 5000 litres. This page will chart our progress. If you can make a donation towards this we promise every penny will go to the purchase of the tubs and you can see the progress here.
Market Deeping Scouts!
For every pound you give you supply 10 litres this and every year when there will otherwise be nothing, the more you give the more good you do.

and the work they put in was fabulous! Well done and thank you both.
