Pictured above, a woman prepares food for students at Ratta Secondary School, which serves 310 students. The school does not have a kitchen which is not an uncommon situation in Ratta. A Girl's Hostel there, which serves 50, has no running water, despite modern toilets and showers. Improved water access through Well Aware's system will provide the community with reliable pipelines and better connected water, enabling children like those of Rata High School and the girls hostel to thrive.
