A Better Learning Environment

VOX school well recipient in Mozambique

A Better Learning Environment

Thirteen-year-old Alfinete lives with his parents in a small rural community outside of Beira, Mozambique. He and and his parents drank water from a dug hole, because there was no other safe water source in the area. Most kids would take a water bottle to school but his family couldn’t afford one. On very hot days, he had to return home to quench his thirst, and then quickly return to school to continue classes.

“We started the new year with a new water well at our school. Now I no longer have to leave school and go home to drink water anymore,” Alfinete said.
 He is very grateful for the new safe drinking water source for the school, and hopes that one day he and his schoolmates will be able to utilize a safe place for human waste.
