John Wesley School of Cocoye
Install Date: September 2010
The John Wesley School of Cocoye provided much needed education for about 150 children from 4-16 years old on the island of Touchuchu. Because of severe earthquake damages, the school has been closed since January 2010. Thanks to hard work by the community and local pastors, however, the John Wesley School is scheduled to reopen in October 2010. The water used at the school is currently collected rain overflow from the surrounding mountains and stored in dug-in water reservoirs around the community. This type of water is at very high risk of contamination, and the local community complains of being sick several times per week. With the help of Poured Out and its sponsors, these school children will be able to enjoy clean water along with their re-established educations!
Follow Up Date: October 2012
The John Wesley School of Cocoye has now been rebuilt and is serving approximately 150 children! The children are drinking clean water and looking forward to receiving their large UV filtration system at the end of the year!
