Girls making sustainable gardens
Hope this finds you well.
Wanted to quick update of where we are with the water well. After our friends at Deeper Missions commissioned hydrologists from Aqua well services Nairobi to re-survey the well, it was confirmed that water exists at the school at a depth of 160 meters. As soon as we raise enough funds, we will be able to drill. We have so far raised $4000 of the $13,000 that we need to drill the well.
We are finishing construction of showers and grey water collection system where we will harvest water to grow food at the school. we have created gardens at the school and planted kale.
As the girls resume next week, there will be so much do do with our newly launched sustainakility club.
Our goal is to convert the obambo campus into a food forest. the success of this project will depend on drilling the well and getting water.
