|Edinburgh Girls High School - Form 1 Students October 2012 - July 2013|
|Water is Life - a day of thanksgiving|
The funding for the borehole and subsequently for the installation of a solar powered pump and storage tanks was raised by the Corrigan family in memory of their son and brother Owen. Ojo's well is now fully operational and the family were here in May 2013 to see the difference this has made not only for the school but for the people in the surrounding communities.
We were in desperate need of funding for a hostel to accomodate students and the Solon Foundation, Switzerland came to our rescue. We received a substantial grant and work commenced at the end of November 2012 with a deadline of 8th January 2013. The hostel was built in record time with running water installed allowing us to have girls boarding from 9th January 2013.
