Providing Clean Drinking Water to Schools in Uganda

Wells for Schools: Uganda - Water Well Project

WELLS FOR SCHOOLS is an opportunity for passionate and motivated students to raise awareness and funds for safe water for schools in the Ruhaama County of Uganda.


The goal of the Wells for Schools campaign is to provide safe water for 50 schools in the Ruhaama County of Uganda.

The 20,000 students at these schools rely on swampy water holes, or simply go without water during school hours.

In order to do this, we hope to engage schools in our community in the global cause of safe water in developing countries.

Sponsoring schools will raise $12,000 - amount it costs to to provide a freshwater well and hygiene training for a school in Uganda.

Participating schools will be equipped with posters, fact sheets, fundraising ideas, and supporting web tools to help them reach their goals.

With your help, clean water will change the lives of 20,000 students and their families during critical years of development.
