A new borehole was drilled this year on the campus of Tropical High School Idudi in the Iganga District of southeastern Uganda. This school is located near Lake Victoria and the international border with Kenya. Most of the people in the region earn a living by selling goods at small shops, and some have small farming plots for agriculture. Idudi village is near the main road from Kenya, where long-haul truckers bring shipments to the capital city Kampala. This school was established only four years ago, but the population of the local community is exploding (nearly 15,000 in the nearby villages) and the school has grown to 350 students, most of whom board year round. The goal of the school is to provide education to children from poor families, so some parents pay ‘tuition costs’ by laying bricks for structures at the school, providing firewood for cooking, performing odd jobs such as cooking or house-keeping, so their children can attend school. The Head Teacher is Mr. Kato Moses, who leads a teaching staff of 25. Previously, these students were fetching their drinking water from an open pond a kilometer away, down in the bush in a nearby valley. The water was contaminated by eroded soil, and accessed by animals. Now, with the new borehole right on campus, boys and girls at this school can drink clean water, and they are healthy to study (see the picture). Since there are only four community boreholes for the 15,000 local villagers, the nearby citizens also have access to clean water today. Many thanks to all of you for making this possible!!
