Grant Provides Clean Water For Todee Vocational Institute In Liberia
By Liam Carstens
BBF funded the purchase of a water tower for a school in Liberia through a partnership with Hearts 4 Kidz, an organization that works with the Todee Vocational Institute and Soccer Academy to provide housing, education, and opportunity to the children under their care. The school serves 50 boarding students and 150 non-boarding students enrolled in the first grade through high school.
A grant from BBF covered the purchase and installation of the gravity water tower, which now provides running water, plumbing, and sanitation services across the entire campus. In addition to granting this access to the students and staff of the school, the tower also allows for the sale of water to the surrounding community. This outstanding double benefit provides both badly needed safe water to the community and much needed sustainable income for the school.
According to Pastor Elwood Jangaba, Mission Officer for Hearts 4 Kids, “We were very blessed to benefit and use the gravity feed water tower to shower and have clean water. It was your organization BBF who sponsored the water tower for our campus in Liberia.”
BBF is pleased to be able to support this remarkable water project through our Infrastructure Program.
