Water Project at Bright Future School in Kilimanjaro

Well project at Bright Future School in Kilimanjaro


A new primary school for disadvantaged children was constructed in Moshi in 2021. Unfortunately, the area is very dry and the only available water comes from city supply which is inadequate and does not meet the demands of the school. Hence, the only option was digging a well with an overhead tank and installation of a pump for the needs of the school to maintain sanitation and hygiene.

The task of digging the well was made possible through the support of the Rotary club of Hai, Kilimanjaro and the Rotary club of Penrith, District 1190, UK and began in earnest in 2021. Mechanical drilling was used to reach the water table at 80 meters, and the well was constructed with an overhead tank along with installation of a pump.

The school now has a constant supply of clean water for 35 children. The impact of this project has been clearly seen in many ways. The school has been able to use the money previously used to pay for water bill towards school development including the construction of new classrooms for future use.

The school now has sustainable water which is used for vegetable gardens, trees and school gardens. There has been an increase in green areas in the school premises due to available water. The school has been able to provide water to several families around the school, and neighbours who do not have running water in their homes. All these have been achieved through this project.
