Water tanks and water catchment systems

ChildsLife installs water tanks are at schools in several remote and marginalized regions of Kenya such as Makueni and Maasai Olepolos.

As part of the school development program water tanks are installed at schools. These water tanks have a rainwater harvesting system, hand wash basins and a drinking water point so that all students have access to clean drinking water. In most cases, a few days of rainfall will provide enough water to fill several 10,000 litre water tanks. This allows for enough water to drink, wash hands, prepare school lunches, and all children to take water home.
