Your commitment - Uganda 2017
The project work with TOOLS FOR LIFE has given me the opportunity to help others to help themselves and to noticeably improve their quality of life. Thank you for this unforgettable experience!
A central water supply was installed for the Chonyonyo Secondary School, a girl’s boarding school that provides access to higher learning for over 1,000 students. Since access to the water source needed to be made available to the residents of the surrounding villages as well, the water supply had to be guaranteed for approx. 3,000 people.
A partial demand of water was covered by rainwater retention which uses the roof surfaces of the various school buildings. For the remaining demand, a well was installed as part of the project which ensures the daily requirement of water is met using solar pumps and purified with its own, onsite water treatment.
The next step was the installation of a distribution system of pumps and pipes which distributed the daily required water to tanks which could then be simply removed at the main road and school Campus.

My TOOLS FOR LIFE staff trip to Senegal in 2012 was a unique experience. And the fact that I was standing on a meadow where today, after only two years, there is a school for several hundred pupils, which the Foundation helped to finance, is almost unbelievable. Great cause and great projects that make a little bit of a difference in the world.
It is inspiring with how much commitment and passion the foundation devotes to its projects.
