Gayaza Road Triangle S 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.

Gayaza Road Triangle S School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Margret. She is the head teacher of Gayaza Road Triangle Secondary School, a mixed school in the urban area of Zirobwe in Wakiso with 200 students.

Gayaza Road 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.

Gayaza Road School will repay its loan from school fees, which it collects each term. Margret 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 waterborne diseases as well as increase the number of students coming to the school.
