SIGNIFICANT NEED IDENTIFIED
At the moment the school has one 2,000 liter water tank that is mainly used for staff lunch and also for making porridge for the pre-school pupils.
The ones who suffer most because of the lack of water are the girls during their special monthly days. They cannot be assured of water and space to bathe so they stay home for at least 3 days a month and fall behind in their studies.
Abundu Primary School is located in West Karachuonyo. It stands upon a hill two and a half kilometers from lake Victoria. To get to it you steadily climb the hill using a stony path. The school was established by the Roman Catholic Church in 1976.
