As part of the Sustainable Development Challenge, a group of grade 11 students from Kelowna, BC, are finding a solution for the Hope Gateway School in Nairobi, Kenya. Their overall objective is to help the school gain access to safely managed drinking water.
The school currently has no running water. They purchase water at the market and carry it back to the school. Sometimes this involves a 2-3 km walk. The water is often unclean.
Angelee Dofeliz, Melanie Ramos and Julia Stevenson strive to implement a dual water system that is comprised of rooftop rainwater harvesting and piping that transports city water to the school. Their plan provides filtered water, holding containers and piping materials. Their system
is a realistic solution to a desperate problem.
Let's support the young women and men of the next generation by giving them the opportunity to flourish with access to clean water.
