Did you know?

663 million people i.e 1 in 10 people lack access to safe water and water crisis is the #1 global risk based on impact to humanity.

1 in 10 people lack access to safe water.

Every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.

Every $1 invested in water and sanitation provides a $4 economic return.

Every drop of your help saves lives! Here is what we have accomplished togther! We hope to continue raising enough money to dig one well a year. We would like to dig a well in every village in Uganda. The government in Uganda is helping us to identify one site a year where we can build a well and a library. The library in Kamira that we opened last summer is the first library housed in a primary school in all of Uganda.

Textbooks for Primary Schools

A drop of water and a drop of knowledge are being provided to two primary schools in Uganda by the DROP Foundation this summer. Boreholes, funded by DROP, have been completed at Lumpewe and Lusenke Primary schools. These boreholes are providing clean accessible water for all students at these schools and for the neighboring villagers.

Another pressing need for students at these schools is the provision of textbooks. Children often share textbooks with 5 or more students using the same textbooks at and never being able to use them at home . Most of these students have never had their own textbooks. Max Todaro, who has previously spearheaded the provision of reading books and library space at schools in Uganda, decided that a more pressing need is the making sure that every student has a text book of their own. Isabella was able to help Max raise funds to provide text books for all P5, P6 and P7 students at both Lumpewe and Lusenke schools. Thus 194 students at Lumpewe and 141 students at Lusenke will start school in September with brand new textbooks in English, Math and Social Sciences. YEAH DROP!!!!

Concern for the Girl Child-CGC
Assessment report on Bbale and St Joseph Ndibulungi Primary School for a Borhole 2020.

Annually, CGC, with support from Drop Foundation, identifies and donates at least one water source to a school in our operation areas. The identification process is guided by the local government authorities and this is followed by a thorough assessment exercise by our staff. The beneficiary school that is finally selected is always in desperate need for clean and safe water for the children and the community around it. The rationale is to prevent children and communities around from contracting water born diseases such as dysentery and diarrheal as a result of consuming contaminated water, usually shared with animals and drawn from ponds/open wells. Water sources are also provided to schools to prevent child related abuses especially to a girl child who are sometimes abused on their way to and from water points. CGC also recognizes the fact that when water sources are distant from schools, time is wasted on collecting water by school children, hence affecting their school grades.

On the 16th July 2019, the Luwero field team led by the team leader carried out a field assessment to Mbale SDA primary school and Ndibulungi R/C primary school to establish the extent of their need for safe and clean water. Prior to the assessment, the team visited and interacted with the Butuntumula sub county chief to gain an insight on a right school(s) in dare need for clean and safe water. Mbale SDA and Ndibulungi R/C primary schools were recommended. Both schools are located at the extreme ends of Luwero district, bordering Nakasongola district- semi a rid corridor with high temperatures.

About Us

My Statement: Ever since I learned that safe drinking water is not available to all children, it has been a goal of mine to help. Goals: I hope to provide at least one well a year to the people of Uganda. Eventually, I would like to put a well in every village in Uganda. The Ugandan Government is helping me identify sites where it is possible for us to put a well and/or library. The library opened in our first well site (Kamira) is the first library housed in a primary school in all of Uganda. I would like to speak at schools other than my own to raise awareness for our cause, as well as educate Seattle of how they can help. Max an
