Description

Nella Secondary School is in Kwimba District. The district is affected with water shortage and has thus been affected with recurring outbreaks of water borne diseases. Schools being a public place is much more affected by the situation.


The project aims to demonstrate how rainwater harvesting technology can be used to improve water supply and sanitation in schools, which are located in areas where conventional water supply systems such as gravity and shallow wellas are not feasible. There will be construction of a one rainwater harvesting tank of 50,000 litres and the project will develop two wing improved pit latrines(VIP) connected with the rainwater havestinfg tank of 10,000 litres capacity. Each wing will be for one gender for the students hygiene. There will also be some seminars on hygiene education and environmental sanitation. It is expected that the project will contribute towards reduction in outbreaks of water borne diseases in the area especially to school children.
