"Water is life" at St Peter Claver

Located in one of the most arid regions in the countryin a good year it receives about 20 inches of rainfall—the school is thriving and has been relying on boreholes (water wells) for its fresh water supply. With so many students and staff living there, there is not enough during the dry season to properly water the vegetable garden although it is a main learning activity in sustainable farming.

The Swahili saying "Maji ni uhai" - "Water is life" captures the absolute necessity of having continuous, safe water in eastern Africa. It can't be taken for granted.

With assistance from the Irish Jesuit Missions, fresh rainwater will be harvested from four large roofs alleviating water shortage and training the students in the efficient use of rainwater.
