Kabukunga Primary School educates 400 students in the Kalagi community. The students currently lack access to the most critical of "school supplies": Clean water.
Although Kasengejje Secondary School is connected to a piped water network, the roughly 800 students in the Wakiso TC community that it serves regularly go without clean water. The reason? The reservoir connected to the piped water network regularly runs dry and cannot support the water demands of the many communities it is connected to. As a result, multiple days each week, students and staff go to turn on the faucet at the school and find no water available that they can use to drink, wash hands, clean, or cook. By equipping Kasengejje Secondary School with a rainwater collection system, we will ensure that its students gain consistent access to their most critical school supply: Clean Water!
Due to significant leaks in the two rainwater collection tanks already located on their premises, the students and staff of Kayindu Secondary School are forced to make the long walk to the distant borehole well. This is something that would be challenging enough for the students, but is made even more difficult by the average hour-long wait time to use the well.
Kitelewasi Secondary School is located in the village of Lundamatwe. There are currently 547 students enrolled at the school and 30 teachers/staff members. The school has two dormitories for girls and a small kitchen on the campus. Most of the teachers live on the campus as well. The school is currently expanding due to the increase of children in the village. Our implementing partner, St. Paul Partners (SPP), visited the school to assess their water needs after the Lundamatwe Lutheran Pastor informed SPP of their plan to create a water system from an old hand pump well that was currently not operational.
