Kabukunga Primary School educates 400 students in the Kalagi community. The students currently lack access to the most critical of "school supplies": Clean water.
The Pakeyo Health Center is a busy facility that sees more than fifty patients a day and currently does not have a source of running water. Before the clinic opens one of the staff members walks to fetch water from a well, but it is a long walk and it is usually just a few hours into the day when the water runs out. This leaves the sick patients with no water to drink, use with medications, wash their hands or even rinse out the one cup they all share.
Amoke Primary School is located in Pader District, Latanya sub-County, Uganda. The current enrollment consists of 386 boys and 217 girls.
After the pipes at the St. Kizito Nankonge Primary School borehole developed holes, the 400 students and community members who relied on its abundant water supply began to have difficulties when using the handpump. Now that the well has completely broken down, its users have been forced to return to a protected spring that is made dangerous not only by the contamination of its water, but also by the busy road traffic, steep slope, and dense vegetation along the route. By bringing in a crew to repair the broken parts of the St. Kizito Nankonge borehole, upgrading its materials to stainless steel, and working with the community's leaders to train them in how to care for it, we will restore this safe and reliable water source for the 400 students and community members and prevent similar problems from occurring in the future.
