A New Borehole for St. Anne Grace Secondary School, Nakifuma


At the end of last year, we reached our goal of $9000 for a borehole well at St. Anne Grace Secondary School in Nakifuma, Uganda! The contaminated spring that was serving as a water source for this school was drying up and students could barely fill their jerrycans because the water level was so low, as you can see in the picture. Enrollment dropped to 300 students because of the water shortage, and the school was headed for closure. The Rotary Club of Coronado learned of the situation, and donated $6000 from a district grant to help us meet this desperate need. Because of this generous donation, the well was drilled in late December, and in March of this year we went to Uganda to see the new borehole. The well is located right on campus, near the dormitories (click on the the video), and importantly, because there is now clean water for the students to drink, the school will not close. Parents are ready to send their students to St. Anne Grace, and enrollment is already beginning to increase. Moreover, local villagers can also use the borehole when it is not in use by the students. Many thanks to Rotary Club of Coronado, and also to all of you for your donations for this borehole!
