Naguru Parents School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Diana. She is the Head Teacher of Naguru Parents School, a mixed school in the Peri-urban area of Naguru in Kampala with 600 students. Naguru Parents School has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining an Ultra 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 an Ultra water treatment system with a 750 litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day. Naguru Parents will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. This will be supplemented by the sale of carbon credits, which the school will generate from using the water tank. Diana 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.
