WellBoring Weekend

Big performances in Chippenham and Water for school children in Kenya
Raising money for a water supply for Obino School in Kenya.Most of Obino School’s pupils come from families that work on the sugarcane farms in Kolwa, Kisumu. Most of their parents spend the whole day working in the plantations. With no lunches at school and no parents at home most go hungry each school day. A day a week is lost to illness in many ‘dry’ schools. At Obino it's a massive two days a week. As there is no water at the school, parents are told to send their children to school with water. So cholera, malaria and typhoid are common due to drinking untreated water from seasonal streams. When it does rain, the area gets swampy causing outbreaks of the parasitic bilharzia.All of this can change.

The plan is to drill some 150 feet down where we expect to find clean water that can be pumped to the surface by hand. With clean water, vegetables can be cultivated and children could be fed too. This will be life-changing for the 660 pupils, their teachers and families. How are we going to do this? We will do it by raising £3,500 starting with the WellBoring Weekend. A small price to pay.
