Following a request from Bugabo Primary School, Uganda Buddhist Centre decided to provide a borehole to supply safe and clean water to the school and the neighboring communities.
This borehole has been donated by Helen Lee and her family who live in California, USA. The family donated 3,200 USD for the installation and maintenance of the borehole. The installation of the borehole has begun, and we hope that it will be complete by the end of June. The borehole is planned to serve about…..children and members of the neighboring communities.
In a discussion with the Director of Studies, Mr. Mugabi Martin expressed that the children have to walk 2km to access water. He also said that the water is not safe, and that they were forced to buy tablets against Bilharzia.
