Compliance Certificates to Schools with safe water

Availability of Safe and clean water for students has been made one of the SOPs for schools to re-open following thier closure for a year due the COVID 19 pandemic. The Ministry of Education and sports in Uganda  has instructed that before any school re-opens for candidates they should be issued with a Certificates of Compliance. For  any  school to be issued with  such a certificate it  has to be with safe and clean drinking water at the school  for students .

The schools that benfited  from the  water purifying systems  were the first to be issued with certificates of compliance in Lyntonde district in South western Uganda . "Having a water purifying system added a lot  for a school to be issued with a Certificate of Compliance and  to re- open for her students;" the Inspector of schools in Lyantonde said in an interview with the project staff. All the shools that benefited from this project were the first to open for  thier students.

 A report  from the Headteacher of the befiting school indicate that, waterpurifiers have provided a tusted source of safe and clean water for sudents  during this Covid 19 period that require up take of a lot of water by students at school.

As OCE we are very grateful to GlobalGiving and her partners to help us reach this mile stone
