Safe water for a school

Jessica Batoure knows the benefits of having a supply of clean water on site at her school. In Burkina Faso, West Africa, communities have to walk long distances to fetch water – which might not be safe to drink. So having a water pump in the school grounds is even more of an incentive for children to come to class. Here, Jessica fetches water for her classmates at Soanga school in North-central region, for drinking and washing. Having a reliable water supp;y has also enabled the local school to start their own vegetable garden. Women and children now grow vegetables specifcally for school meals. Their garden supplie onions, cabbage, beetroot, aubergines, potatoes and yams. Way to grow!
