BENEFITING: Drop in the Bucket

THE STORY:

The Mityana Secondary School is in the central part of Uganda

The school was started when the villagers banded together to raise the funds to send some of their children to a teacher training college. Once they had completed their training they returned to the village to start this school. The school also is the home to 100 orphans and 20 special needs children.

The schools development plan involves setting up a computer laboratory and a public library so that the entire village has the opportunity to become computer literate and develop reading skills.

As of right now the nearest water source is 5 kilometers away, which is too far for the to utilize on a daily basis. The current water source dries up during the dry season and it is also unsafe. It is very common for people from the school and surrounding villages to contract diseases like Typhoid, dysentery and diarrhea and malaria from this unsafe water source a new well will prevent this from happening.

The well will be centrally located between 6 villages. The school has 650 students, 400 girls and 250 boys. This in itself is unusual as in Uganda, generally boys are more likely to complete secondary education that girls. There are 35 teachers at the school and it is a mixed boarding school.

This is a school that has shown a huge desire to help themselves. They have achieved so much without any outside help already and the amount it will cost for a well is beyond their current means.

Drop in the Bucket is a Los Angeles and Gulu, Uganda based non-profit that has visited the school and intends to build a well there. With your help we can raise the funds needed to provide all of these children with water, increased health and a better future. Please help, you can donate or you can spread the word on this. With your help we can get these children a well.
