Hayes & Jarvis celebrates another successful project granting clean water and sanitation to Kenyan school, in association with Just a Drop

Ahead of World Water Day, 22nd March, Hayes & Jarvis celebrates the success of its latest philanthropy project, providing access to safe drinking water and improving sanitation and hygiene for Kiteta Secondary School, Kenya, in association with Just a Drop.

Hayes & Jarvis has been supporting the international water charity, Just a Drop, for the past nine years and is the water aid charity’s longest standing partner. The latest project has brought safe water to 592 pupils and teachers and improved general health across the school and wider community following the implementation of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) education. 

The project was funded and supported by Hayes & Jarvis following a fundraising campaign that saw five members of the company climb Mount Kilimanjaro in 2016. Raising over £10,000, the intrepid team trekked over 5,000metres to the ‘Roof of Africa’, battling freezing temperatures and extreme altitudes.      

Lesley Rollo, Managing Director, Hayes & Jarvis, comments, “Hayes & Jarvis is immensely proud to support Just a Drop as its chosen charity. Clean water and safe sanitation is a growing and prevalent problem across the world. The latest project not only provided safe water solutions and sanitation facilities for a Secondary School in Kenya, but evoked exceptional staff engagement through a dedicated year of fundraising from the whole company.  We look forward to continuing our efforts to support the charity and cause that affects so many on a global scale.”

The project funded the construction of a 104M3 storage tank, capable of collecting safe water through the rainy seasons and storing water when the rains do not provide enough. It also saw the installation of three handwashing facilities, education on WASH and the introduction of a Health Club to continue educating current and future students on safe water and sanitation.

Fiona Jeffery OBE, Founder and Chairman, Just a Drop, comments, Just a Drop, comments, “It was an honour to work with Hayes & Jarvis once again on the recent project in Kenya. The school and wider area has already seen a significant improvement in health with increased attendance in lessons as water-related illnesses decrease. We are thrilled with the continued support we receive from Hayes & Jarvis. Alongside the financial donations, their enthusiasm to help promote and support our cause is fantastic and hugely valued.”

Since launching its partnership with Just a Drop, Hayes & Jarvis has donated over £70,000 to the charity and has sponsored eight projects, including Bolivia, Uganda, India and Kenya.

Hayes & Jarvis is proud to announce its ninth project, in association with Just a Drop, which will take place in Chray Village, Cambodia. The current water supply provides an unreliable supply of poor quality water that contains a high presence of E.coli bacteria, high content of manganese and iron and a low PH. Not fit to drink, locals frequently become ill which has a direct impact on education, health and productivity in the area. In addition to the poor water conditions, there is a lack of sanitation facilities at the local primary schools posing a high health risk to pupils and teachers.

Hayes & Jarvis customers can support Just a Drop by adding an optional £1 donation per each Hayes & Jarvis booking.
