Amusia Primary School - Well Rehab

Uganda 640 beneficiaries Soroti
Amusia Primary School is located in the Eastern Region of Uganda in the city of Soroti. H2O for Life schools previously supported a borehole well that was installed on the school property in 2014. Since the addition of this water source, the school population has risen from 450 students to 640 students who currently attend.
Although the well has been working adequately, the government of Uganda has passed a law requiring all new wells to be fitted with stainless steel pipes. These pipes never rust and last a lot longer than galvanized iron pipes. Our implementing partner, Drop in the Bucket, has been outfitting all of their new wells with stainless steel pipes for the last few years. 
This borehole well rehabilitation project will include the following:
  • Removing all of the old galvanized riser pipes and replacing them with new stainless steel pipes
  • Replacing or cleaning and lubricating the hand pump 
  • Inspecting the original cement and replacing it if necessary
  • Training members of the school and community to maintain and repair the pump when needed
