Kan ju ti ireti - School Project

The Nigerian Project

Phase #1 will be to establish a bore-hole following a geological survey to confirm water availability. Before commencing drilling, a bore-hole needs a drilling permit and an environmental report. Once drilled, the bore-hole must be lined with steel casing to stop the bore-hole collapsing and to screen out the large sand particles from entering the pump.

Installation of the pump:

The cost of solar has decreased over the years so the main choices now are solar verses grid electricity. The higher initial cost of solar will be offset long term by the lower running costs. Sunlight in Africa is very reliable and very predictable. Countries on the equator are not short of sunlight!


 
 

 

Tanks:
Solar only produces water when it is sunny or bright. To match supply to demand, it is usual to add water tanks. In this case, 2 tanks were added, both 5000L each. The top tank is used to gravity feed water to the school and the bottom tank supplies water to the community taps. If both tanks are empty, it will take about 1 day of sunlight to fill them.

Investment into a 40 ' Energy Container for uninterrupted off-grid power supply

intechcleanenergy.com

The Intech Energy Containers is a solution to deliver energy to rural areas. Each container is equipped with a photovoltaic system and a lithium-ion battery backup. Every system comprises a monitoring system which allows the customers but also Intech s engineers to access the data online.

All Intech Energy Containers are pre- assembled, pre-tested and pre-configured before shipment which ensures a fast and cost-efficient implementation.This will not only power the pump but provide a flood light sports playing field in Phase #3

DEVELOPMENT OF A BIOSAND FILTRATION (BSF) STATION

Embedded Microsoft Office presentation, powered by Office.

The BioSand Filter (BSF) is a household water filter that makes dirty water safe to drink. This particular type of filter is an adaptation of the traditional slow sand filter, which has been used for community water treatment for almost 200 years.

The BSF is smaller and adapted for intermittent use, making it most suitable for households, typically around five people. In the case of a school it should serve 10 to 15 children for thier time at school.

A bank of BSF's would need to be installed to serve the children's needs

KITCHEN GARDEN PROGRAM

An organic kitchen garden will be established behind the BSF shed, catchment water from the roof can be used to irrigate the garden.

The Kitchen Garden Program is a fun, hands-on learning program delivering pleasurable food education. With strong curriculum integration and a focus on student wellbeing, collaboration and leadership, students learn to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal,  delicious  food - forming positive food habits for life.

ESTABLISHING A MORINGA FARM

Moringa oleifera

For centuries, the natives of northern India have known of the many benefits of Moringa oleifera. Its uses are as unique as the names it is known by, such as Horseradish tree and Drumstick tree (referring to the large drumstick shaped pods) and in East Africa it is called "Mother's best friend”. In Haiti it is referred to as Biolive (due to the oil extracted from the seeds)

In Africa Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.

Three non-governmental organizations in particular - Trees for Life, Church World Service and Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization - advocate Moringa as “natural nutrition for the tropics.”

In developing tropical countries, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.

In developing tropical countries, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.

Leaves can be eaten fresh, cooked, or stored as dried powder for many months without refrigeration, and without loss of nutritional value. Moringa is especially promising as a food source in the tropics because the tree is in full leaf at the end of the dry season when other foods are typically scarce.

Analyses of the leaf composition have revealed them to have significant quantities of vitamins A, B and C, calcium, iron and protein. According to Optima of Africa, Ltd., a group that has been working with the tree in Tanzania, "25 grams daily of Moringa Leaf Powder will give a child" the following recommended daily allowances:

In developing tropical countries, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.

In developing tropical countries, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers.
  1. Protein 42%,
  2. Calcium 125%,
  3. Magnesium 61%,
  4. Potassium 41%,
  5. Iron 71%,
  6. Vitamin A 272%,
  7. Vitamin C 22%.


These numbers are particularly astounding; considering this nutrition is available when other food sources may be scarce.

Scientific research confirms that these humble leaves are a powerhouse of nutritional value.

Gram for gram, Moringa leaves contain:

  • SEVEN times the vitamin C in oranges,
  • FOUR times the Calcium in milk,
  • FOUR times the vitamin A in carrots,
  • TWO times the protein in milk
  • THREE times the Potassium in bananas.
Scientific research confirms that these humble leaves are a powerhouse of nutritional value.

The Moringa tree has great use medicinally both as preventative and treatment. Much of the evidence is anecdotal as there has been little actual scientific research done to support these claims. India's ancient tradition of ayurveda says the leaves of the Moringa tree prevent 300 diseases. One area in which there has been significant scientific research is the reported antibiotic activity of this tree.

The immature pods are greatly valued and widely used. The pods are extremely nutritious, containing all the essential amino acids along with many vitamins and other nutrients. The immature pod can be eaten raw or prepared like green peas or green beans, while the mature pods are usually fried and possess a peanut-like flavor.

The pods also yield 38 - 40% of non-drying, edible oil known as Ben Oil. This oil is clear, sweet and odorless, and never becomes rancid. Overall, its nutritional value most closely resembles olive oil.

The leaves are eaten as greens, in salads, in vegetable curries, as pickles and for seasoning.

The leaves are eaten as greens, in salads, in vegetable curries, as pickles and for seasoning. They can be dried and pounded and sprinkled over food or added to milk. Leaves and young branches are relished by livestock. In developing tropical countries.

Key Message: Different seeds can be used to help remove sediment from your water.

Possible Questions:

•  Have you ever used seeds to sediment your water?

•  If yes, how do you usually use seeds?

Content:

The first step in treating your water is to perform sedimentation. When our water is dirty we need to sediment it. Microbes like to stick to sediment, so by removing the sediment we are removing microbes.

We can sediment our water using seeds. Different seeds are used in different countries and regions. Some seeds that can be used for sedimentation are: Fava Beans (Latin America), Moringa (Africa, Caribbean and parts of Asia)

There are different ways people use seeds to sediment their water. Explain how to use the seeds available in your area.

One way is to do the following steps:

•  Let the seeds dry out in the sun

•  Grind up some seeds

•  Add a handful of ground seeds to a bucket of dirty water

•  Stir the water with a spoon or stick for a few minutes

•  Let it settle for a couple of hours

•  Pour the clear water into a clean storage container

The seeds will be left at the bottom of the bucket. They should be thrown out with the rest of the household garbage.

By using sedimentation, we are helping to get better water. We still need to filter and disinfect our water after using seeds.

Check for Understanding:

•  Why would you want to use seeds?

•  How would you use seeds to sediment your water?

•  Is the water safe to drink after sedimentation?
