A loan of $2,075 helped to purchase a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

School Of Hygiene's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Richard. He is the principal of School of Hygiene, a mixed school with 300 students in the urban area of Mbale. School of Hygiene 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 consistent access to 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 two water filtration systems will 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-liter tanks, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

School of Hygiene will repay its loan from school fees, which are collected each term. Richard hopes that having access to safe drinking water will ultimately 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.

This loan is special because:

It gives students and staff safe drinking water.
