Mutaki School, Kenya Rainwater Collection System

Mutaki Primary is a public primary school in the village of Kooi in the Tana District of Kenya. This area has been suffering from an extended drought during the past four years, and the local river and reservoir are now dry for the majority of the year. Groundwater prospects for a bore hole or drilled well at Mutaki were not good, and rainwater collection was the best alternative.
