Challenge

When approaching the School one can't help but smile upon hearing the unavoidable sound of more than 1024 pupils playing while others confidently recite their alphabet. The pupils walk 2.3Km to find clean drinking water, also lack basic infrastructure such as clean latrines and safe water supply. This is a reason for children to be absent and drop out from school eventually. Water supply is not available in school, so teachers/children have to bring water from other sources about 3Kms away.

Solution

This project will provide clean and sanitary drinking water (Tap Water) and 2 secured storage tanks, improving the health and future of the Learners. SCOEN believes that all children should have clean water and access to life-changing health and hygiene education. Our goal is to provide quality water to Akaikai Primary School, essential to SCOEN's strategic focus in Soroti.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project children will attend class fully, improve on their grades, creates a plentiful source of low cost refreshment throughout the day; encourages good health and wellbeing among pupils and staff; reduces tiredness, irritability and distraction from thirst; can have a positive effect on pupils' concentration throughout the day and school.
