A new borehole
was drilled (see picture) on the campus of Trinity College Nabbingo Secondary
School in the Wakiso District of central Uganda, near the capitol city Kampala.
This school is a large all-girls boarding school with an enrollment of
1700. The campus is located in a
peri-urban area, but until now contaminated water was pumped to holding tanks
and the girls had to suffer from intestinal disorders when they drank this
water. It is the first all-girls school to receive a borehole from Quench and Connect. Also, the lack of sufficient safe water was
especially acute at this high school because of the need for water for personal
hygiene for so many girls. Now, with the
new borehole right on campus, 1700 girls can drink clean water and are healthy
to study. This borehole was donated by the McFadden Family of Omaha NE. Many
thanks to the McFadden Family for making this possible!!
