Buyubu Borehole

Posted by Steve Hall on November 7, 2023
Buyubu Primary School is located in the Iganga District of Uganda. The school has a current enrollment of 711 students (343 girls and 368 boys). Buyubu Primary did not have its own water source, so the students were made to fetch water, multiple times per day, from a community well located at a local trading center 1 km away. The school’s headteacher hired a laborer to fetch water for the school, which worked for a while, but it turned out to be unsustainable as the school soon ran out of money. The long walk and long wait times at the well caused the students to miss a lot of classroom time, so the school urgently needed its own well.

Our implementing partner, Drop in the Bucket, recently drilled a new borehole well that will provide safe water on the school grounds for years to come! Having this well at school will allow these students to stay healthy and focused on their education.
