Teso 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 its students.

Teso College School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Sylvester. He is an Administrator of Teso College School, a boys school in the rural area of Soroti with 2000 students.

Teso College School has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining two UV water filtration systems 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 450 litre & 1000 litre tanks, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Teso College School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Sylvester 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. This will also help increase the number of students coming to the school.
