OVIKLO was instrumental in installing a water access system in a rural school, struggling to provide access to clean water to its staff and students. With assistance of Divisional secretary in Palugaswewa, was able to identify the Galapitagala Vidyalaya in Palugaswava, a school that was enduring considerable hardship as a result of its exceedingly limited access to fresh, clean water. Before the initiatives, the 180 students and 16 staff members of the Galapitagala School had access to a single tube well to fulfil their water requirements.
Commenting on the OVIKLO International contribution to the Galapitagala Vidyalaya, School Principal Nalini Damayanthi stated, “Our students come from families with very severe financial and social difficulties. Therefore unlike many main district schools, we can expect very little support from the parents to maintain the school infrastructure and facilities. Our water problem was very severe previously so parents who lived close by had to bring water in pots every day in the morning for the children to use during mealtimes. A little while later we were able to install a tube well to access running water in the school. However the water was often full of grit and couldn’t be used to drink.
“Today, thanks to the good work they did in the school our well is renovated, we have a new water pump, and many taps located around the school compound. The water that our 200 students use now is clean and drinkable. The children are happier and no time is wasted queuing for water at one tube well anymore – so there is more time for learning and play. As a community we have benefited greatly from this initiative and we are very grateful to OVIKLO for giving us the gift of clean water.”
The OVIKLO CSR team used its expertise to install a sustainable water access system through a robust tap line system and additionally, donated notice boards, a first aid box and educational materials, as required by the deserving students at the school
