Clever's Origin Junior Sch's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Barbra. She is the head teacher of Clever’s Origin Junior School, a mixed school in the urban area of Kasokoso in Wakiso with 400 students.

Clever’s Origin 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, 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 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.

Clever’s Origin School will repay its loan from its school fees, which it collects each term. Barbra ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve students' concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children who fall sick from water-borne diseases, as well as increasing the number of students coming to the school.
