Mityana Secondary School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Sammy. He is the Head teacher of Mityana Secondary School , a mixed school in the rural area of Namukozi in Mityana with 1000 students.

Mityana Secondary 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 1000 litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Mityana Secondary School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Sammy 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.
