In 2012 we completed a sustainable deep borehole project at St. Bonaventure Primary School in Mulajji Village, Uganda. We now need to complete Phase 3: installation of a gravity fed tap system to the school, cooking area and dormitories.
The children have no way to properly clean their jerrycans on a regular basis and still have to fill and carry heavy jerrycans full of water from the new 2012 borehole. We need to bring safe water directly to the students, staff and visitors.
