The Problem

At the Buleega School in rural Uganda, there was only the crumbling remains of an old cement water tank that was once used to house water for the students. After years of decay, the tank became unusable and the students did not have easy access to clean water.

The Solution

We funded the construction of a new brick and cement base and the purchase of a new rainwater catchment tank for the school. Using a catchment system off of the roof of the school buildings and a filtration system in the tank, the students now have access to clean water year round.

Project Updates

    • Working with the NGO Mission for Community Development (MCODE), we are funding the purchase and installation of a new rainwater catchment tank at the school.  This new tank will provide clean water for 320 students who attend the school. MCODE works  to help promote community driven development projects in Uganda. Their work is critical in helping poor rural communities with a variety of projects such as this.

    • Work has been completed at the Buleega School in Uganda as the finished rain water catchment tank is officially put in place.  Many happy students were on hand to see the finished tank and share a message of gratitude for the work.  Thanks go out to local NGO, Mission for Community Development (MCODE) who managed the project on the ground and to all of the members of the Donation Team who made this project possible.
