The Impact Climate resilience at Sora Primary School.
One school that has benefitted from our climate-smart strategy is Sora Primary School, a remote school community located in Babati District, Tanzania.
This school is totally cut off from the grid, resulting in very poor hygiene with no running water for basic health and sanitation needs.
Before installing our climate-smart solution, students had to bring water to school, or walk — sometimes hours — to collect it from the nearest source. Implementing a School Feeding Program was also impossible, meaning students would have to go home for lunch, often resulting in low attendance rates, or students dropping out of school completely.
With support from our global donors, in 2022 So They Can was able to drill a borehole and install a solar pump solution (due to the lack of electricity at the school). This solution now provides the school's students and their community with a safe and sustainable supply of drinking water 365 days a year.
Today the school is able to implement a reliable School Feeding Program.
