After more than 3 years of planning and preparation the permanent clean water scheme for the Jubukweni Primary & High Schools in rural Swaziland (southern east Africa) is nearing completion.
These photos show progress with 1 of the 3 dams, construction of a tank stand for some of the 11 water tanks as well as laying pipes in some of the 1,300 metres (yards) of hand dug trenches. The school community are contributing around 1,850 days of volunteer “sweat equity” labour to help change the lives of their kids. A cattle trough will also be installed to protect from damage by wandering animals.
The current school population is 590 people, with more than 2100 people expected to pass through the Jubukweni schools over 20 years. MOSS Foundation’s investment amounts to just AUD$16.12 per person currently, or AUD$4.34 per person over a 20 year period. That’s just USD$3.05 to change the life of a child. It’s just so cheap!
Thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors and everyone that spoke up for MOSS Foundation or bought an event t-shirt or bought something at a charity auction.
YOU have made a DIFFERENCE!
