Mothercare Infants 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.

Mothercare Infants School's story

This is Teopista. She is the Deputy Head teacher of Mother Care Infants School, a mixed school in the urban area of Masanafu in Wakiso with 320 students.

The school has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining a Tulip 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 the filtration water treatment system, with 1 set of 60-litre tank to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Mother Care Infants School will repay this loan from their school fees, which they collect each term.

Teopista hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve her student’s 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.
