Serving 417 students in Uganda’s Mukono community as a private day school, Kakinzi YMCA Primary School currently relies on water from a nearby borehole but continually finds its needs unmet. The borehole is unreliable and frequently breaks down, so students have to fetch water from other sources off school grounds. These water sources are also unsafe so are treated with chlorine and other chemicals before drinking, but the water retrieved is not stored safely afterward. In order to protect the health of students and redeem critical classroom time, Kakinzi YMCA Primary School is in need of a rainwater collection system that will provide safe water for drinking, handwashing, and more.

Serving approximately 1000 individuals in Uganda’s Mukono community, Nakifuma Church of Uganda Primary School currently relies on water from nearby piped water, but this source is often locked or otherwise inaccessible. The school also uses a rainwater collection system, but this does not provide nearly enough for such a large population - the facility spends roughly 120,000 Ugandan shillings on water related expenses a month. The new rainwater collection system will lead to saved money being put to use for bettering the school and church and improving life for the students at Nakifuma C/U Primary School.
Serving over 500 students and community members in Uganda’s Mukono community as a faith-based day and boarding school with a church on-site, Nakifuma High School currently relies on piped water and a single rainwater collection tank.

In order to protect the health of students and redeem critical classroom time, Nakifuma High School is in need of a rainwater collection system that will provide safe water for drinking, handwashing, and more.
