Project: Catmon Integrated School

Aklan, Western Visayas (Region VI), Philippines

This project was made possible with the partnership of:

Repair of School in Altavas, Aklan and the children’s access to potable water.

In 2013 typhoon Yolanda caused havoc in the Philippines. One remote casualty was the Catmon Integrated School in Aklan.

The aftermath of storm Yolanda

Previously the school had built a tank for the water of the school system, but the water coming from the water of the barangay system could not reach the reservoir from school because of the low water pressure generated by multiple connections of the residents of barangay living downstream from the site of the school. A new water supply system had to be implemented to supply the new toilets, washing and cooking area.
