Madinah School's story
Greetings from Uganda! This is Ishamaca. He is the Head teacher of Madinah Islamic School, a mixed school in the Urban area of Nsangi in Wakiso 900 students. Madinah School has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining two 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 two UV water treatment systems with two 450 litre tanks, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day. Madinah School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Ishamaca ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his students’ 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.
