St. Michael’s school in Kakindo, Uganda, is now enjoying clean water, as the pictures included with this form show. Because of weather and terrain, there was a slight delay in actual drilling; however, the water well/borehole has been drilled to a depth of 120 feet. Serving approximately 800 students and staff as well as local villagers, it is providing a safer, healthier educational environment as well as sustaining and enhancing the living conditions of those in proximity to this well. The photographs provided are of the grateful and happy students and staff. As well, you can see the ILW plaque near the well.
Their only existing water sources was a nearby, polluted water pond, which is 800 meters (half mile) away from the village. Though it was (relatively) close, it was the source of many cases of illness like Cholera, which has to be treated at the clinic, costing about $30 per person. This is 1 month’s average wage. Untreated, it could be fatal.
