Safer Water, Healthier Children: CBCGDF’s Water Safety Fund Improves Rural School Drinking


Children need safe water; but clean water is not always readily available for rural schools. CBCGDF established a Water Safety Fund. Recently, donation was in place, and starting in January 2019, a rural school started drilling new well. The water safety renovation project of the whole rural campus is expected to be completed in March. By then, children can have enough and safe drinking water!


Previously, water supply for the school children was from a shallow-well through this pipe, and then distributed to every classroom. When water was scarce, children kept on very frugal in washing their hands.



There is a river less than 100 meters away. Most of the water in shallow wells comes from the river. And 20 meters from the original shallow-well, lots of rubbish on the roadside.


The bottle in the left picture contains shallow-well water after electrolysis, that is the water for children's daily drinking; the right bottle contains mineral water.


In the near future, children will be able to drink safe water every day!
