Water for Schools.
Myles of Great Hopes has donated a 10,000 liters of water tank to IlBissil Township primary school in Kajiado Kenya. This was our first phase to the project. We have done a second phase of digging trenches and connected the school with the municipal water at the small town. Our third phase is the drilling of the well. We have partnership with the Global Outreach Group at the Sacred Heart Cathedral Church in Raleigh, a 25K project wih the goal of drilling a well.
Also, we have donated a 5K liters water tank to the Salvation Army church in Nyangeri, Embu. We are serving more than close to 400 church members and families in this supply. A highly contaminated Itimbogo river due to agricultural chemicals rundowns during rainy season is not only solving clean water needs but also health issues thereby saving on economies of medical sicknesses and loss of productive time or school call offs from the children.
After evaluation, we have determined this project incomplete since the goal is to have permanent source of water. We have therefore partnered with Sacred Cathedral Church in Raleighhttp://www.sacredheartcathedral.org/index.cfm in support of sinking the water well. The bore hole survey has been already funded by the Sacred Cathedral and was completed by NYIKA ASSOCIATES HYDROLOGISTS (LICENCED HYDROGEOLOGISTS IN NAIROBI. as of May 6th 2013. This is a survey report produced under the approval of WARMA – a public sector institution namely the Water Resources Management Authority (WARMA) Kenya Government.
Because of our friends and donors through fundraising efforts, we donated a water tank to IlBissil Township Primary School with more than 900 pupils. We still envision to sinking a water borehole to permanently solve this problem. Picture below shows the successful launch of their water tank, head teacher Mr. Daniel Nayiahah serving his students.
Water for Kenya Project
Our main and central focus with the organization is therefore clean water provision. We realize and with all validity acknowledge solving a water problem in a community is in essence solving a health problem as well as solving an educational problem.
We therefore see these three items: Water, Health, & Education as an intertwined, weaved together dancing and feeding on each other. It’s hard to separate them. Our primary survey to the community also authenticates our approach. Since we listen to the needs and address those needs, Our logo therefore represents our three pillars our core programs and our mission to the community.
Global Outreach Group at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh – Hillsborough Street is our main sponsor of this Water for Kenya Project. We are very appreciative of their commitments to the project and their love for the children and the community at large of this semi arid region part of Kenya.
According to the NYIKA ASSOCIATES HYDROLOGISTS (LICENCED HYDROGEOLOGISTS IN NAIROBI report as of May 6th 2013, at least 1800 feet of drilling is required, meaning a foot will cost at least 14 dollars.
We have a very good campaign going on right now and it offers anyone to donate to whatever cause we have with our organization. This is very well displayed on the gofundme campaign which we invite you to browse and share with your friends and social networks.
The good news is that, among the five projects shown, a donation to water project will account a summary of it’s funds donated, while a donation for the cow project will account for the funds meant for the cows etc. Each category will therefore add to their own but the money goes into the same pool. It is therefore easier and transparent to know the Water donations added up to support water amounts to xxxx while the donations in support of a cow or or goat project will reflect that.

Water Bubbler – Ozonator Machine and Stainless steel tank for Il Bissil Girls High School
Reclaim Water Filters and System CEO remind us that Ozone is used in the treatment and purification of drinking water. Ozone is non carcinogenic, generated from oxygen and is ten times stronger than chlorine at water disinfection. Our purifiers bubble up ozone through water in a container of up to 500 gallons. The ozone kills waterborne pathogens and oxidizes organic chemicals in the water helping to make it safer to drink. Bubblers can be powered by 12 VDC solar panels or run from 115 or 230 VAC so please specify which one would best suit your needs. A pictorial instruction set is included with each bubbler.
Through sponsorship by Reclaim Filters and Systems –Open Water Reclaim site here of Wake Forest North Carolina, Myles of Great Hopes has donated a Water Bubbler Machine to – Il Bissil girls High school. The company also donated a stainless steel water filter talk and its white approved bags as filters that would fit to size. Il Bissil girls have more than 400 students including teaching staff and others.
In a letter from the school leadership and students body, the Ozonator machine is beneficial and their survey indicates few cases of stomach problems, or common water borne diseases according to their letters.
