Uganda Tech. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Rajab. He is an Administrator at Uganda Tech. School, a mixed school in the rural area of Wakiso with 650 students.

Uganda Tech. 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 consistent access to clean drinking water, and therefore has to spend a large portion of its budget on firewood to boil water for the children.

This loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 750 liter tank, which will store enough clean drinking water for the students every day. Installing a water filtration system will save the school money in the long-term as the cost of firewood will be reduced.

Uganda Tech. School will repay their loan from school fees, which they collect each term. Rajab ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his student’s concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that fall sick from water-borne diseases as well as increase student enrollment.
