A loan helped to purchase a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for its students.

St. Jude P. Lira School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Sr. Florence. She is an Administrator for St. Jude P. Lira School, a mixed School in the urban area of Lira with 1500 students. St. Jude P. Lira 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 their budget on firewood, which is used to boil water for the children. Installing two water filtration systems 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 750 litre tanks, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

St. Jude P. Lira School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Sr. Florence ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve her 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.

This loan is special because:

It gives students and staff safe drinking water.
