Clean Water for Ufani Primary School and Neighboring Areas

Students of Ufani Primary School were obtaining their drinking water from a dirty creek.

As throughout much of rural Africa, the students of Ufani Primary School had been obtaining their drinking water from a creek that was perpetually soiled by the presence of grazing livestock. Karimu ended this practice by piping water from a clean source on the wall of the Rift Valley escarpment which rises above the village and by installing a filtration system and storage tank. Taps provide clean water for the school and homes in the vicinity of the school.

Benefits:

  • Fewer instances of diarrheal diseases
