Our Goal: Providing 600 Children With Clean Water

Kyangabakama Primary School

Kyangabakama Primary School with a population of 600 children and 10 teachers is located 10 kilometers away from Kamira trading center in Buwanuka LC1, Kitenderi Parish Kamira S/C Luwero district.

This school has experienced problems with water since its establishment in 1962. Since then the children and their teachers have shared water with the animals which they are fetching from pond that is 1km away. This has not only complicated the learning process of the pupils but has caused water borne diseases like diarrhea, bilharzia and typhoid. Consequently, according to the school administration this challenge has partly culminated into poor academic performance since water is life.

Therefore, this project when completed is expected to provide safe and clean water to 486 school children, teachers and to neighboring households. The project will put an end to the long suffering and thirst children have gone through and improve the general hygienic and sanitation conditions of the school and children. This project is also expected to increase the school enrollment, retention and completion as the traditional challenge will be no more with the support from The Drop Foundation.

3/12/2014 UPDATE:

The well at this Kyangbakama school is completed. Water is flowing well and The community is now putting up the fence to keep the animals out.This school has asked for a library so will be very excited to hear they will get one. CGC staff will get an estimate for the cost of a secure room for the books. Just like Kamira.

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
