It is unhealthy for our children to use dirty water which is not safe for use. Water is life! Our children depend on water for their survival! During the dry season, many institutions lack water or have inadequate supply of water. A water tank stores water for consumptions in such times.
A water tank is expensive to buy and when it comes to installation of water in the school is again costly. The pipes have to be installed and the taps fixed for its smooth running. The pipes must be laid underground a depth of about 2 meters. As an institution, you need to register at the water supply center and pay a registration fee then the water will be being psi for as per the consumption of water at the institution each month
Scarcity of water is the main problem that faces the community we dwell in. Due to the need for water at our school, we are forced to locate and fetch water from different sources. These sources for instance include; spring, borehole, taps and from most of our rivers.
HIP Academy cares a lot for its students, water being life. Staff members from Hawthorne Elementary School in Atlanta GA USA bought a water tank that will store clean water for the students. Students won't go thirsty!
This has been a really BIG day! HIP Academy students came to check out our cool new blue chairs and experience some educational enrichment activities while school is still officially out on break. Once the students started to get comfortable, they really started to participate in their lessons and they showed how much they already know! Great job, HIP Academy students!
We have gotten so much accomplished, it's hard to believe that in just a few short days, the students will be arriving for the mid-term enrichment program. When they get here, we will have chairs for them to sit in. These chairs will allow the students to form flexible learning groups, rather than the use of bench seating! We are all so excited!
It may not be evident from this photo, but in less than one month, children from the neighboring areas will be attending school in this building! We are busy gathering the necessary supplies for the grand opening of Hope Academy, a school by the Hope Initiative Program (HIPAfrica) which was founded as an organization to improve lives of the members of the community. Stay tuned for more updates from us!
