St. Clement Nkoni S. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Patrick. He is head teacher of St. Clement Nkoni S. School, a mixed school with 850 students that is located in the rural area of Nkoni in Lwengo. The institution is requesting a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining a UV water filtration system to provide clean drinking water to 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 save the school money in the long-term as the cost of firewood will be less. The loan will also allow the school to buy a 1,000 liter tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for students every day.

St. Clement Nkoni S. School will repay their loan from school fees, which it collects each term. Patrick hopes that access to safe drinking water will improve his student’s concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children who fall sick from water-borne diseases. He also hopes that it will increase the number of students coming to the school.
