Mid Land Senior Secondary School is situated at Kakooge Town Council, Kakooge Sub County, Nakasongola County, Nkasongola District in central Uganda. The school was privately founded by the family of Muwonge in 2007 and later on the Government took it over as a seed school for Universal Secondary Education but going through a lot of hardship in funding, infrastructural development, water and sanitation
The founder, Muwonge is a Christian and he is a deacon in the faith within central region. He went through tough times to reach where he is and felt he could do something to narrow such gaps, he came up with the school and managed it well up to a time when the Government took it over but he is still on the Board of Governor committee.
Hydromisisons received a request to help at this school because it was on the brink of being shut down due to the poor hygiene conditions. V.I.P. latrines are very good for these conditions, but they are costly and a burden on a small secondary school’s budget. This project came at the right time for the 160 boys and girls because the Health inspector had given a warning to close the school in May 2017 if the latrine wasn’t put in place. Had the latrines not been constructed, the boys and girls would have been sent home indefinitely for the poor hygiene of their school.
Funding from Hydromissions, overseen by our field manger in Uganda, built a four stances’ V.I.P pit latrine for Mid Land Secondary School with a curtain wall and a wash area [urinal] for the side of the boys.

Hydromissions returned to the islands off the coast of Panama to continue to support the village of Ngobe people adjacent to the Wood family missionaries from the state of Washington. In the past, Hydromissions provided a well, latrine, hygiene education and additional well drilling training. The homes in the village are spread around two different terrains. One cluster of homes is built over the water, mixed in with the mud and mangroves. The other cluster of homes is built on the hills, out of the tidal flood zone. The homes on the hill have closer access to the well built in 2014. The particular cluster of houses built in the mangroves has a man who is bedridden (paralyzed) and his daughters paddle their cayuco (canoe) over every day to get water. In addition, a new school was constructed in the village.
