Help us provide clean, safe drinking water for a school in Uganda


Over the past few months the Dugdale Charitable Trust has built a number of new school buildings for the David Tyler Nursery and Primary School in Uganda.

This school will initially cater for around 300 children, including a number of orphans who would not otherwise be able to receive an education.

There is an urgent need to provide clean safe drinking water with either a water bore or water storage tanks.

The photo shows a village home and the typical yellow jerry can that is used for collecting and storing water.

Please click on the photo and watch the video to see how the children currently collect water from a contaminated and unsafe water hole. It is 1.5km distance from the school and they either have to carry the cans or tie them onto the back of an old bike. Below is another short video of the school that the Dugdale Charitabele Trust funded and arranged to be built.

In New Zealand, we take for granted that we have 24 hour access to clean water for drinking, washing and showers. In Uganda, drinking unsafe water is one of the leading causes of death and disease.

We can make a difference.

Would you be willing to help us raise the $15,000 needed for this life changing project.

Water Project is now completed  18 July 2021

THANK YOU for all the help toward this project.

The provision of water at the David Tyler School is going to make a huge impact on the children and the community.

We provided 2 x 30,000 litre brick tanks plus 2 plastic tanks (10,000 and 5,000 litres)

In addition we have arranged for the government to run 1.5 kilometres of water pipe to connect to their supply.

The school will only use this water in the dry seasons when the tanks run dry. Mostof the time the water tanks will be filled from the roof water. We have to pay for the government supply but water can be sold to people in the community to recover some of this cost. So once again thank you.
