WHERE WATER IS THE MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE …
I

magine a school with 300 learners and their teachers … having access to just one municipal water tap.

That’s the reality at Sibongumbomvu Combined School in the rural farming area of Cedara. One tap – shared by all the learners and their teachers – for washing hands, cleaning, cooking school lunches and washing up afterwards.

It’s an impossible situation. Yet the solution is simple …

If rainwater could be harvested into storage tanks, it would provide ample water and significantly cut the monthly municipal water bill which the school struggles to pay.

The classrooms offer a large roof area – ideal for rain catchment. But over the years, the gutters and downpipes have fallen into disrepair.  Precious water spills everywhere and is lost. So along with installing water tanks, we need to replace all the guttering. And the cost far outweighs the slender resources of this humble school.

Your kindness – in making a donation now towards a water harvesting system for the children and staff would make all the difference.

A local building and hardware store has generously offered us a discount on the water tanks and the materials needed to repair the guttering. And they will also deliver everything free of charge. But we need to act without delay.

Previously known as St Joseph’s Catholic Mission School, Sibongumbomvu School boasts a 100% school leaving pass rate. These children really want to learn and build a better life for themselves through education. Something as simple as running water from a tap would make such a difference to their daily lives. Please help if you can.
