At the end of September of this year, 2018, the drill rig generously supplied by Amigos for Christ, with whom we partnered at Instituto Augusto Sandino in La Carreta, hit good water at 170 feet! It tested pure, so it will be the wonderful source of clean water for drinking, sanitation, growing and preparing the harvested vegetables in the school garden. This development will also soon allow for the addition of a small-animal husbandry curriculum at the school.
Currently the pipes are being laid to the motor house, all costs of which are covered by Somos Ohana Nicaragua. The achieving of a good water source for the school enables us to begin construction of the planned 3rd wing of this secondary school in La Carreta, providing the school with a kitchen/cafeteria, a library, and a teachers’ room.
