Namungoona K P School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Beatrice. She is the deputy head teacher of Namungoona Kigobe Primary School, a mixed school in the urban area of Masanafu in Kampala with 600 students.

Namungoona Kigobe 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.

Namungoona Kigobe School will repay its loan from school fees, which it collects each term. Beatrice ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve her student’s concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that fall sick from waterborne 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.
