$855.00 will purchase a water tank; $200.00 will provide pipes and gutters to collect rain water from the classroom roofs and $20.00 will provide a portable wash station for the school children.  In 2014 a 52-year old UK woman used her life savings to build a school in a rural area in the central highlands of Kenya.  The school began with six students and has grown to 68 children who regularly attend.  There are 11 children on the 'waiting list' for the nursery, with future plans to build an additional classroom. The crucial thing that is lacking at this time is access to clean water. The ability to harvest rain water during the rainy season is the highest priority for the school and surrounding community.  Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.  Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies are not strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.  Clean water is crucial to the children’s health and sanitation.
