Drinking water for Msareni Primary School (Tanzania)

Lack of clean water negatively affects education and income. The UN estimates that every day, women and children spend over 200 million hours or 25% of their day, carrying water, for their families and homes. This for example is time not spent attending school!

It's time to make a difference:

Trinkwasser für die Msareni Primary School

Msareni Primary School is located in Uru District (Tanzania), close to Mount Kilimanjaro and situated about 15 km to the north of Moshi town.

The children of Msareni Primary school had to walk 6 km to fetch water. They constantly need water for sanitary facilities, kitchen and for drinking water supply. We have built a waterpipeline 1 km long, to serve the needs of 370 children and teachers visiting the school. Two additional water tanks of 15.000 and 30.000 liters will guarantee fresh water at any time.

Beside that, we facilitated the water supply of the Village Njari (appr. 2500 inhabitants) wich is located nearby.
