Water for Gonve CU Primary School in Mukono District, Uganda

Gonve CU Primary School is a public school located in Mukono District, Uganda. The village of Gonve is about 73 km away from Kampala and is located in a remote, rural area. Currently, it is attended by 242 girls and 186 boys.

There is no water connection at the school. Therefore, the children fetch water from a pond two kilometers away and bring it to school in jerry cans. Since the water comes from a pond from which animals also drink, it is contaminated with feces and is not suitable as drinking water.

Together with local partner Suubi Community Projects, Engineers Without Borders is working to drill a well so that the children no longer spend so much time fetching water – instead of doing their schoolwork – and have access to clean water at school.
