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

Holy Family Nursery And Primary's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is John, the head teacher of Holy Family Nursery and Primary, a mixed school in the urban area of Kampala with 300 students. Holy Family Nursery and Primary has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining a UV water filtration system that will provide clean drinking water for its students. The school does not currently have access to consistent clean drinking water, so it must 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 since the cost of firewood will be reduced. The loan will enable the school to purchase a UV water treatment system with a 450-liter tank, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

Holy Family Nursery and Primary will repay its loan from the school fees that are collected each term. John ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his students’ concentration and attendance by reducing the number of children that become sick due to water-borne diseases, as well as increase the number of students enrolling into the school.

This loan is special because:

It gives students and staff safe drinking water.
