Ingavira Primary School was established on a small plot of land surrounded by sugar plantations and community homes in 1981. It’s a public primary school with a large number of students that perform averagely in academics. The area is noisy with motorbikes and tractors which transport sugarcane from farms to the West Kenya Sugar Factory across the road from the school.

Deep in Nakasongola, Uganda, Drink Local Drink Tap (our implementing partner) has partnered with the Irimba community for many years. As DLDT expands water service in this area, sanitation facilities need to also be completed. Irimba Primary School hosts children from multiple villages. Girls especially like to go to school there because of the DLDT toilets (ventilated improved pit latrine- VIP) and the water well (borehole). The last item the school needs is a latrine block (VIP) to host a few hundred boys. The girls received theirs a few years ago.

Katembe Primary School is located within Kanungu District adjacent to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in the south-western corner of Uganda. The school is a long-established Government-aided school providing education to the poorest children in the district. There is no other school choice for these children – the only other schools within an hour’s walking distance are private schools with higher fees that these children cannot afford. Katembe is an absolutely vital school with over 700 children registered, though the usual number attending is approximately 600-650 as some cannot afford the small fee contribution (less than $10 per term).
Project Proposal: 3 New latrines and handwashing station.
