Kabingo Parents School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Godwin. He is the head teacher of Kabingo Parents School, a mixed school in the urban area of Isingiro, with 450 students.

Kabingo Parents School 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 750 litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Kabingo Parents School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Godwin 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 water-borne diseases. As well, he hopes that it will increase the number of students coming to the school.
