Relief as students and children in Bagamoyo get safe, clean water

​​​​​​​STUDENTS and children at the Boko Mtambani Secondary School and Amazing Steps Orphanage Centre in Bagamoyo, Coast region have a reason to smile after securing water service, thanks to a non-profit organisation—‘Time To Help’ for drilling two water wells to serve the population.

Speaking during the handing over event in Bagamoyo, the organisation’s Public Relation Officer Mbwana Kitendo said the institution was happy to fulfill its dream of bringing reliable water to the needy.

This service will help the students and surrounding community mitigate the problems arising from lack of reliable water. “Water shortage also affects performances in schools as students also spend a lot of time searching for the liquid,” he said.

Mbwana said apart from building water well at the centre, they have also renovated the classrooms at the Boko Mtambani Secondary School to enable the children study in more conducive environment.

He said Time To Help is a charity organisation introduced by Feza Schools to help the community in different aspects of life including construction of water wells, new classrooms, library, computer and others.

Kitendo also said that the organisation recently managed to organize a two-km charity walk to sensitize the community extend their help to children with disabilities.

He said in this year, the organisation is planning to offer more than 1,000 health insurance cards to different orphanage centres in the country.

“Our aim to ensure that children with disabilities also access quality health services in various hospitals,” he said.

The launching of the water-wells was attended by volunteers from Netherlands who are main sponsor in collaboration with Feza Schools as well as the Bagamoyo MP, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa (CCM).
