2022 04 Wells of Life Photo

Pictured are Lou Metzger and Aidan Jordan ( Wells of Life) presenting Principal Fergal Boyle and the senior prefects.

Lou Metzger ( Chairman) and Aidan Jordan (Operations Manager) of the charity Wells of Life Ireland visited Coláiste Dun an Rí Kingscourt recently and presented Principal Fergal Boyle with a photobook. This contains photos of the well in Uganda that was funded jointly between Coláiste Dun an Rí and Wells of Life in 2019. The school based fundraising was undertaken by Miss Sinead Leahy's CSPE class in 2020.

The Covid pandemic and related restrictions greatly delayed this presentation. To raise funds students undertook a ‘Cycleathon’ in the school foyer and also hosted a bake sale for students in the school in February 2020. These activities raised almost €1000.

The main beneficiaries of the fundraising event are the roughly 1000 people in the village community in the Mityana district west of the capital Kampala who now have clean safe drinking water.

Wells of life has been in existence for 11 years and to date has been responsible for the provision of clean water to 820,000 people in rural Uganda. Principal Fergal Boyle commented " The concept of the Wells of Life work is remarkable and the impact of the provision of clean water for these communities is lifesaving. A concerted effort by our students has had huge impacts on the lives of the people in Mityana and that’s very humbling for us. It’s our hope that we can continue our contribution to this cause." 

Lou Metzger chairman of Wells of Life Irl stated “it was a pleasure working with these wonderful young people, who understood and cared for those so far away from Ireland”

Aidan Jordan who is the operations manager of the charity thanked Mr Boyle and Miss Leahy for their support to date and expressed the hope that the link between the school and the charity could be ongoing.
