Hill Mark J. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Joseph. He is the Director of Hill Mark J. School, a mixed school in the urban area of Seeta in Mukono distrct with 300 students. Hill Mark J. 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.

Hill Mark J. School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Joseph 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.
