In her speech at the handing-over ceremony, the head teacher, Irene Nalubega, said the children had wasted a lot of time having to wait for the cattle keepers to water their animals before they could draw water for the school and their homes. She also said there was a high risk of children drowning when fetching water from these deep dug ponds. A child was lost in such an accident last year.
“The people of Katega village, including these school children, we have been sharing the dirty pond waters together with cows, goats, stray dogs, and snakes! Thus, with this clean and safe water in our midst, this makes me extremely, extremely, very happy.” – Paul Yiga, Katega village chairperson, at the handing-over ceremony
