Water you waiting for? If a student body of only 190 can raise $7000 in a week, imagine what your school can do. Students’ innovative fundraising methods helped spark the interest of the community, which helped them attain their goal. The Meridian Medical Arts Charter High School in Idaho became the first school in America to provide a complete water system in Uganda through their donation to Drop in the Bucket. Thank you for your commitment to community awareness as well as your donations!
The well at the Alworo Primary School of 593 children was completed in February 2008. The toilets, septics, hand-washing station, roundabout pump and underground reservoir tank soon followed. This was also the first school at which we upgraded the doors from wooden doors to steel doors.
Our good friend Robinah set up a nursery school named after her father in Imanyiro. She also runs a Primary school in the Jinja area, but “Pop’s Place” in Imanyiro is a particularly great school. Rather than trying to educate hungry children, Robinah makes sure that all the school children get to eat at least one nutritious meal daily, and now they also have a well.
