At EHS we are aware that keeping our pupils hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the school day. As a result, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid.
Our decision to install water coolers from AquAid means that for every machine we have donated money to The Africa Trust.
We are proud to announce that our contributions have led to the installation of an 'Elephant Pump' well in a community in Africa. The pump is based on a 2000 year old design. This is a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system and is built by the people of the area who are then taught how it works and how to repair it using local materials and parts.
One of these wells bears proudly the EHS name and will supply sufficient clean drinking water for a rural community in Africa for many years to come. This pump will bring much needed clean, fresh drinking water to the community but will also benefit other sustainable projects. We fully support this initiative and are incredibly proud to be involved.
