Providing Water

Yatala Primary School at Kuruneegala District in Sri Lanka has 48 schoolchildren and 8 staff, but no water supply. As a result the children and teachers resort to water bottles brought from home.

The Yatala Primary School had a working well, but this well dried out towards the end of 2016. The only water supply at the moment is the water that the teachers and the children bring from home. This is a big burden for everybody, resulting Sometimes they don’t have enough water to drink, to flush the toilet and to wash their hands with.

That is why Boost Foundation and FutureCare aim to build Yatala Primary School a permanent well in a designated spot (picture) of a reservation area with pipes to transport the water to the tank in the school.
