Diima Primary School borehole

Donor: THE STEVE WILLIS MEMORIAL FUND. IN LOVING MEMORY OF STEVE WILLIS (MANAGING DIRECTOR OF RED CHILLI); BORN 29TH AUGUST 1967; TRAGICALLY KILLED IN MURCHISON FALLS, 8TH NOVEMBER 2005.

Diima Primary school is a government aided school located in Pii Akeyo village in Diima parish, Mutunda sub-county, Kiryandongo district. The school supports 899 children (451 girls and 448 boys) from 326 parents living in 8 villages of Pii Akeyo, Diima A, Diima B, Barudugu, Alengo, Palee, Laboke Hanga and Diima Hanga located around the school.

The local water point serves not only the 899 children but also 14 staff members at the school, and 150 neighboring community members. Under this great strain the water point broke down and then only partially functioned. In partnership with the Steve Willis Memorial Fund The Water Trust decided to carry out major rehabilitation on the school deep well.

Pii Akeyo village where Diima Primary School well is located has 150 households living in it. At the start of the program, the village had a latrine coverage of 25%, 16% of the people had handwashing facilities, 31% had bath shelters, 52% had refuse pits and 55% had drying racks. With regards to the safe water chain the community had 47% of people using clean fetching containers and 26% with clean storage containers.
