Following up on the previous successful St. Monica-Karawab Clean Water Project by expanding to St. Monica’s sister village, Karawab. An 1800 gallon rainwater collection system was constructed to benefit the 137 students at St. Monica Primary School. Unfortunately, due to time constraints the second half of our project to construct a similar system to benefit the 150 students of Karawab Primary School was not completed.
