About the Project
The Manda Maweni community has never had access to clean water, so the school and community have been paying for water to be trucked in. Fresh water is available across the strait in neighbouring Shela, on Lamu Island. This project funded a well in Shela that now benefits a school there, and adds an underwater pipeline to Manda Maweni Primary School. Water is pumped into a tank where community members can collect it.
This project is supported by the Zelma Kay Memorial Fund.
