MALIMBA COMMUNITY SCHOOL
Malimba Community School opened its doors in January 2021 to 180 children.
It is already full and overcrowded with children as there has been no school to service these villages. There are more children than space in the school, its overcrowded!
The children there urgently needed access to water. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we completed the construction of the first borehole well fitted with a manual hand pump that gave the school its first drops of water November 9, 2021. However, from a government water analysis test, we found that the water has very high levels of naturally occuring iron, so we will need to also install a treatment system.
We will continue our fundraising to provide a water filter system for clean drinking water, and handwash station, similar to the project we have developed for Masantigie. To read more about this project click here.
