Bubangizi S. School's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

Bubangizi S. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is John. He is the head teacher of Bubangizi School, a mixed school in the rural area of Sheema, with 800 students.

Bubangizi 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 since the cost of firewood will be reduced. The loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 1,000 liter tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Bubangizi School will repay its loan from its school fees, which it collects each term. Ultimately, John 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 as by increasing the number of students coming to the school.
