well

This well will serve St. Michael High School (about 480 students); St. Augustine Nursery & Primary School (about 500 pupils); and 80 community households. More people from the surrounding area whose children go to these schools will also have access.

Currently their only existing water sources are a nearby, polluted water pond, which is 800 meters (half mile) away from the village. Though it is (relatively) close, it is the source of many cases of illness like Cholera, which has to be treated at the clinic, costing about $30 per person. This is 1 month’s average wage. Untreated, it can be fatal.
