The Our Lady of Peace Girl's Secondary School well project was completed on January 16, 2014. Our Lady of Peace is a boarding school in western Kenya with 230 students and 36 teachers and staff. This project is a supplementary well.
The following is an excerpt from the project report:
“Mrs Obilo was overwhelmed since she said that the presence of the well was a great achievement for the school and she feels proud that this happened while she is the principle of the school. She also said that the presence of water in the school will save time for the girls and they will be able to focus more on their studies. Also their health will be greatly improved with a clean water supply and they hope that this will hence lead to an improved performance in schools.
One of the biggest problems the school has experienced was the decline in new student enrollment because of lack of a clean water supply. Parents had been avoiding the school because of this issue but now it is expected that school enrollment will increase this year and the years to come."
