St. Theresa Primary School

Uganda 216 beneficiaries

St. Theresa Primary School has approximately 216 students and is located the Mpigi District of Uganda. A shallow well with pump serves a population of about 3,000 people in this community. The students at St. Theresa Primary School walk a distance of about 2km to this current water source across a high-traffic main road. The walk to the shallow well includes a steep slope, dense vegetation and can be dangerous for students. Instances of harassment have occurred while students and community members have been fetching water. Occasionally, the school will have a tanker-truck come to provide water, which is an additional expense for the school. Having a water source directly at the school will allow students to fetch water without having to leave the classroom and provide a reliable source of fresh rainwater to the students and teachers.
