Pader Secondary School’s only option for clean water was to buy it from a nearby trading center. For a school this large, the financial burden of having to buy water each day left them struggling to stay afloat. The school urgently needed a well of its own in order for it to stay operational and thrive.
The school is currently closed, but our implementing partner, Drop in the Bucket, successfully drilled a borehole well that will provide safe water on school grounds for the students when it is time to return. Pader urgently needed a permanent source of clean water. Having this well on the school grounds will provide plentiful safe water and allow these students to concentrate on their studies.
