From the borehole to the pond and back again

Rehabilitation of one primary school borehole has been successful but many others still depend on unreliable water. 

Burungu is a rural primary school in Karambi Sub County of Kabarole district in Uganda with a population of over 420 pupils. Water is an absolute necessity for both the teachers and children. It is recommended that each pupil accesses at least 5 litres per day. However, the nearest source – a borehole just about 400 metres away from the school – cannot be relied upon. It breaks down frequently.
