A chronic problem in the region is finding a regular supply of clean water for drinking and washing. With this in mind, our partners in Gusau have decided that they should drill a borehole on the school property to supply both the school and the adjoining Graceland Hospital, currently under construction.
The Africa Education Partnership board has responded positively to this request and has allocated funds for this project. Funding for this project is a cooperative effort with Kateri Medical Services, who have provided half of the $5000.00 cost.
Avon-Canton Rotary Club.
AEP board member Elaine Chagnon presented the need for clean water at the school to the the Avon-Canton Rotary Club, We are pleased to report that they decided to donate $1000.00 toward the cost of the borehole.
At the June meeting of the club, they presented Mrs. Chagnon with a check for $1000.00, which she accepted on behalf of Africa Education Partnership. We are very grateful to the Avon-Canton Rotary Club for their generous donation.
