Water for big plans
These school pupils have big plans. Many want to go to university when they leave school to train to become teachers, doctors or engineers. Yet it is a difficult path to get there. They live in Uganda, one of the world‘s poorest countries. At the Divine Mercy High School in Kyotera, the 300 pupils – of which around 80 percent board at the school as they live so far away – share six toilets. And water is a scarce commodity. The well frequently dries up. If they are thirsty, they often have to walk to the public water taps to buy water. We want to change this situation.
