As we walked by a school Jackson mentioned that Rotary had done a water project there. They had built a borehole pump and plumbed the roofs with water catchment pipes and tanks. This looks very similar to a proposed project that I am looking into in Navaisha (7 hrs away) for the Rotary Club of Campbell River Daybreak. This is a VERY low income school. The tanks are dry (no rain in a long time), but the borehole still provides water. The head teacher was dying for us to stay and talk to teachers and students, but we had to keep going. They think RC Kakamega was behind the water project, I will find out tonight. Here's a 2" video of school.
|Amongst the kids is a water pump. In behind you can see the black water tanks and pipes coming off the roofs|
|Rotary rain catcher tanks and plumbing at a very poor school in the boonies- note kids do not have uniforms, very rare. Good national results at Elufwahfwah Community School. 220 kids.|
