A New Borehole for St. Joseph's Secondary School in Kyankwanzi


Early this year, we reached our goal of $9000 for a borehole well at St. Joseph’s Secondary School in Kyankwanzi, Uganda! The well was drilled in late spring and in June we went to Uganda to see the new borehole. More than 450 students now have clean water to drink, and no longer have to fetch water from filthy ponds shared with cattle. As you can see from the pictures, the students now can pump clean water into their jerrycans, and enrollment has started to increase. The Head Teacher tells us that even before the borehole was completed, parents were asking to send their students to this school. St. Joseph’s school serves an extremely poor region, and students who cannot afford fees bring a 100kg bag of beans for admission. Illiteracy is high in the region, so this school has a big impact on local growth. Many thanks to all of you for your donations for this borehole!
