Details of the nearest water source where water is collected for daily activities: The school has a small tank that collects water for use during rainy season.

Other comments from informants: According to the head teacher, water scarcity is one of the major problems the school is facing most especially in the dry season. She said that recently they have a water tank but it also has cracks therefore it cannot keep water for so long. Sometimes back they used to get water from the dam and at times buy from the tap. We interacted with the students and they told us that they used to get water from the dam and a tap which were also at a distance.

However, the head teacher said the water table around the school is very low. She revealed that there was an attempt to construct a borehole a round the school but it failed to work.

Our observations and recommendations: Ndibulungi primary school really also deserve a bore hole because during a hot seasons pupils walk long distance to collect water.

Our General Recommendations and Observations: Mbale SDA and Ndibulungi Schools are in a dare need for our intervention. It was difficult for us to make a choice. Our recommendation is that ff one school is taken on this year; let the other one be put into consideration next year. Or we could advise the school not selected, to do a fundraising, where parents, teachers and well-wishers are invited to contribute towards a borehole drilling or underground tank construction and CGC contributions some money to that cause. Because both schools really deserve borehole/ water source.

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
