In the far southwest corner of Uganda, amid the rolling hills, is Rukungiri. Here, St. Jerome Ndema Secondary School provides education to the surrounding community. One of their greatest needs isn’t curriculum or school supplies, but water. Without clean water access at the school, students must fetch water from an alternate source, reducing time in class and raising the potential for disease and sickness.
With your help, Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish is endeavoring to help by funding 2 rainwater collection systems for the school, giving safe drinking water and access to the students and staff. Join them today!
