Sky Standard Nursery and Primary School

Uganda 206 beneficiaries Mukono District

Project Complete!

Sky Standard Nursery and Primary School already has a rainwater collection tank attached to its facility, but its supply simply isn’t sufficient to provide adequate water for the washing, cooking, and drinking needs of the students and staff. In fact, in the months of January and July, the water was unavailable due to a dry source. 
Ensuring that they have sufficient clean water by adding a second rainwater collection system to the school’s facilities will be a vital step in empowering the students to succeed in their educational aspirations and secure a bright future. By gifting the Sky Standard of Nursery and Primary School a second Rainwater Collection System, we will make an immediate and critical impact on the staff and students in the community.
The Ugandan Water Project will erect a 10,000 liter polyethylene tank on a base made of brick, hard core, and cement. Once cured, our crew will then place the tank on the base and make an overflow hole in the top of the structure and attach a pipe to it that will extend six inches beyond the perimeter of the base. Crew members will also attach face boards to the roof of the building adjacent to the tank in order to create a suitable surface to which they can attach the gutters that will allow water to flow from the metal roof to the tank. Just before the outlet pipe reaches the tank, a “T” joint will be inserted to create a first flush, a rudimentary filtration system that reduces the amount of debris and contaminants that enter the tank. The crew will then construct a protective walk around the tank and first flush, as well as a tap stand located slightly downhill of the tank. The rainwater collection system will be paired with four Sawyer Point One water filters in order to ensure that all water collection from the tank will be safe for drinking.
