Running Water for Schools in Georgia

Remember when we went to Leliani, Georgia and hung out at Kamran’s host family’s farm?

Leliani road

Kamran is working on a project to pipe water to the Leliani community school. Right now, there is no running water for drinking or hand-washing inside the building. This type of project is great for several reasons:

  • It solves a basic but very important need
  • It will positively impact 300 kids
  • It can be quickly completed
  • Local suppliers and workers will benefit
  • It has a small budget ($550!), so your help really does make a difference

Our friend Kelley, another Peace Corps volunteer, has a similar water project that needs funding in Akhaltsikhe. You can read about it here: http://appropriateprojects.com/node/1271

Want to read about a completed water project in Georgia? Our friend McKinze wrote a great blog post about how the staff of an Akhaltsikhe nursery managed to care for 60 toddlers without running water.
