Due to COVID 19 pandemic all schools have been closed in Uganda to prevent the transmission of COVID 19 to school children. Today (3th /August,2021) in a conversation with District Education Officer for Lyantonde has appreciated the role of providing water purifiers to schools in improving the quality of school enviroment that has led to improved students academic performance in the National examinations. According to the Uganda National Examiniation Board's results "The schools that were supported with water purifiers have performed relatively better than those students in schools without safe drinking water " the District Education officer (DEO) has said. The DEO continued to report that the district was ranked the 10th best performing among 112 district in Uganda in the 2020 National examination results. He has a suggestion that all schools should have such an enviroment with safe drinking before they reopen for children in this era of COVID 19 pandemic. He attributed this, to the role played by the performance of students in the school with safe and clean drinking water this project( Sanitation Facilities for Rural Schools in Uganda) has provided. This project has reached out to 8 schools only and our plan is to reach out to 32 more school with water purifiers. We want to appreciate GlobalGiving foundation and her partners for thier contribution towards this impact.
