Kisaasi College 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 the students.

Kisaasi College School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Yusuf. He is the Head teacher of Kisasi College School , a mixed school in the Urban area of Ddungu in Kampala with 800 students.

Kisasi 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 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 run since 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.

Kisasi School will repay the loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Yusuf ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve students' concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that fall sick from water-borne diseases, as well as increasing the number of students coming to the school.
