A loan of $525 helped to purchase a water filtration system to provide clean drinking water for students.

New Horizon Nursery And Primary School's story

Greetings from Uganda! This is Emmanuel. He is the Director of New Horizon Nursery and Primary School, a mixed school in the urban area of Naalya in Wakiso with 420 students. New Horizon Nursery and Primary School has requested a loan to cover the cost of installing and maintaining ceramic 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 its budget on firewood, which is used to boil water for the children. Installing 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 ceramic water treatment systems with a 120 and a 120 litre tanks, which will be big enough to store clean drinking water for the students every day.

New Horizon Nursery and Primary School will repay their loan from their school fees, which they collect each term. Emmanuel ultimately hopes that having access to safe drinking water will improve his student’s 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.
