We at Granard Primary School are aware that keeping our children hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the school day. As a result, we decided to invest in www.aquaaidwatercoolers.com water dispensers from AquaAid.
Our unique relationship with AquaAid has also given our school the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our school’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquaAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe and Malawi; and have donated in excess of £8 million to charity.
