It’s hard to imagine not having access to clean, safe water. At Magulu Primary School in Uganda there are 341 students, and their teachers, who don’t.
Every day, students walk a 1.5 km round trip to fetch water from a local source that is contaminated. The local community attempted to improve the water by building a cement collection area and a retaining wall but this has done little to prevent bacteria and dangerous organisms from continue growing.
This holiday season, we want to give the Magulu Primary School a 10,000 liter Rainwater Collection System (RCS) installed on their school buildings. In addition to improving the health of current students and teachers, on-site access to clean, safe drinking water is also very likely to encourage additional students to enroll at Magulu Primary School … and they have the space to grow!
Please join us in helping the Uganda Water Project provide not just clean water, but better health, access to education and freedom from the daily task of walking for water.
