For the students and staff at St. Matthew Kiwangala Central Primary School, collecting adequate water for each day’s needs is an arduous process. Without a water source of its own, the school is forced to send young children and teachers to a shallow well in the area that is also used by 700 individuals from the community. Because of the large number of people using the well, wait times are long- students and staff stand in line for an hour or more on average before they can access the water themselves. Combined with the fact that the walk to this well also requires students to cross a main road, it is critical that the St. Matthew Kiwangala Central Primary School is equipped with a rainwater collection system of its own so that its students and teacher have reliable and quick access to clean, safe drinking water.
