Supporting COVID proofing of schools with provision and enhancement of water for school hand wash

SLWP has been promoting school WASH in accordance with its support of SDG 4 and 6. In view of the current COVID -19 pandemic it is even more essential that marginalized schools be provided with handwashing facilities and water for safety of the school community.

In response to a request from the Denuwara Educational zone, Kandy, SLWP provided two Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) systems and a groundwater recharge for existing wells in 2 marginalized schools in Denuwara Education Zone in Central province. These schools which lacked adequate water for school handwashing facilities were particularly endangered during the pandemic. Udawela Primary School in Danture, Pilimathalawa received a RWH System and a Ground Water Recharge pilot project while Wijayalanka Vidyalaya in Welamboda, Kadugannawa, received a RWH System.
