Global H. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Ayaa. He is the Director of Global High School Tororo, a mixed school in the urban area of Tororo with 300 students. Global High School Tororo has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining a UV water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

The school does not currently have access to consistent clean drinking water and therefore has to spend a considerable portion of its budget on firewood, which is used to boil water for the children. Installing a water filtration system will therefore save the school money in the long term as the cost of firewood will be reduced. The loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 1000 litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Global High School Tororo will repay its loan from its school fees, which are collected each term. Ayaa ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his students' concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that fall sick from waterborne diseases as well as increase the number of students coming to the school.
