With our road complete, the next step was to construct a drainage system. As most roads in Uganda are made of dirt, it is customary to construct drainage ditches on both sides of a road to allow water to safely run off.
Shortly after completing our road, we were able to raise enough funds to complete our drainage system! As soon as the funds were raised, our construction crews got to work. The job was completed on August 25, 2020.
Now, heavy rains will send water running along ditches beside the road, instead of flooding and damaging our "Road of Hope"! This will allow easy access all the way through this remote area to our school no matter what the weather condition!
