Creamland Academy 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 UV water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

Creamland Academy School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Winnie, the director of Creamland Academy School, a school in the urban area of Wakiso serving 380 boys and girls. The school has requested a 3,735,000 UGX loan through Kiva's field partner Impact Carbon 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 save the school money in the long-term, as the cost of firewood will be reduced.

This loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 450-liter tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day. Creamland Academy School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term.

Winnie ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve her students’ concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that fall sick from water-borne diseases as well as increase the number of students coming to the school.
