A message from the community

On behalf of everyone in Orongo Primary School, I extend my sincere gratitude to Lifewater Canada for providing us with the drilled water well. It will improve the school's and community's living standards.

  -- Milka Ombati, Headteacher


Some community details (provided by our in-country partners)

To meet the drinking and sanitation needs of its 600 students, Orongo Primary School in Kisumu County had a rainwater harvesting and storage system. However, there was never enough stored water to last through the dry season -- leaving student and teachers desperate for other water sources, even dirty ones that are dangerous to human health.

"It is the only life we have known for a long time," says headteacher Milka Ombati.

However, that changed after the school contacted Lifewater and asked for help. Thanks to our donors, we drilled a well that is providing enough safe and easily accessible water to meet everyone's needs. Now, come rain or sunshine, the students and staff of Orongo Primary School will always have water only a few steps from their classrooms.
