Recently, a new borehole was drilled (see picture) on the campus of Kabaale Sanje Secondary School in the Rakai District of southern Uganda, near the border with Tanzania. This school is the largest in the district with nearly 3000 students enrolled who come from mostly poor farming families. It is the largest school to ever receive a borehole from Quench and Connect. The need for clean water was especially urgent at this high school! In September 2016, this district of Uganda was struck by a 5.9 magnitude earthquake and hundreds and hundreds of homes were destroyed in the region. The struggle for the local families is still great as they try to rebuild. The boarding students at Kabaale Sanje Secondary School had to travel 4 kilometers from campus to fetch water from an open well that is freely accessed by animals. The incidence of cholera was high, and students at this school suffered from intestinal diseases since they had only this contaminated source for drinking water. Now, with the new borehole right on campus, 3000 students can drink clean water and are healthy to study. We received a $4500 grant from The Rotary Club 33 of San Diego for this borehole, and with additional donations from some of you, the well was drilled a few weeks ago. Many thanks to Rotary Club 33 of San Diego and other donors for making this possible!!
