Project: Water Well for Spiritan Secondary School, Bo,Sierra Leone:
Local Contribution: $2,500
Donor: Lynch Foundation $5,000
In order to secure water for the school, rain water from roofs is captured and a daily trek of some 15 miles to a river is required. This project provides for construction of an on-site water well to provide the students, faculty, and others with a safe and reliable process to obtain clean potable water.
The 500 students and teachers will now be assured of a safe, on-site water supply, improving health and academic standards at the school established in 2012.
