Sunrise Nursery And Primary's story

Greetings from Uganda!

This is Roland. He is the Head Teacher of Sunrise Nursery and Primary, a mixed school in the urban area of Matugga with 500 students. Sunrise Nursery and Primary 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 consistently 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 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 a UV water treatment system with a 450 litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Sunrise Nursery and Primary will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Roland 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 the number of students coming to the school.
