Munta Royal 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.

Munta Royal School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Benon. He is the Executive Director of Munta Royal School, a mixed school in the rural area of Mityana with 800 students.

Munta Royal 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 750-litre tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Munta Royal School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Benon ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his students' concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children who fall sick from water-borne diseases, as well as increase the number of students coming to the school.
