Water Charity

I submitted a water project through Water Charity (awesome organization that funds projects that can be completed for under $555) for a 5,000L water tank to collect rainwater at my school.  To read more about my project go to http://appropriateprojects.com/node/1273. 

A group of high school seniors in the States saw my project online and sold bottles of water to raise money to fully fund my project.  Pretty awesome, eh?

I was able to work with the headmistress on this project.  She was able to bargain and get some good prices (costs below are in KSH) for the materials.

5,000L KenTank:  36,000/=

2 bags of cement:  1,740/=

1 PVC pipe:  1,100/=

2 Tuff. PVC bends:  500/=

1 Socket:  70/=

2 Backnuts:  300/=

1 Collection G:  850/=

2kg Binding wire:  500/=

1 Tap Peglar:  800/=

Labor:  1,000/= or 2,00/= (I don’t remember the exact cost now)

It took a couple of weeks for the tank to be completely installed and set up.
