Hopeful Future S. School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Theodaros. He is the Director of Hopeful Future Secondary School, a mixed school in the rural area of Kayunga with 350 students. Hopeful Future 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 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. The loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 750-litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Hopeful Future School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Theodaros ultimately 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 increase the number of students coming to the school.
