Drinking Water Well for the Dr. Asha-Rose Migiro Girls‘ School - Mwanga, Tanzania
The Dr. Asha-Rose Migiro School is located in the small town of Mwanga in a very dry region in Tanzania’s North-east. In 2009, the public secondary school was founded to enable girls to reach the O-level in four years. An upgrade of the school to A-level is in process of planning. Currently, 320 girls attend Asha-Rose Migiro School. About a third attend the day school, two-thirds the boarding school.
Constant water supply to the school is a problem due to the aridity of the region. During the rainy season from March to May rain water is collected in large water tanks. During the remainder of the year, the school relies on the local water supply which is, however, unreliable und unable to supply enough water. Outside the rainy season, the school often has no water, whether for drinking, cooking, doing laundry, personal hygiene or the vegetable garden which is very important for provision.
Against this background, planning for the construction of a well to supply the school with water all year round commenced in 2016.TOOLS FOR LIFE supports this project, that is planned and carried out by the organization PROBONO School-partnerships for One World e.V. in cooperation with the school, with 2,500 EUR.
