About the project

The Challenge

Kolo Primary School in Rarieda Constituency, Siaya County is a public mixed primary school that suffered from poor performance and low enrollment due to lack of proper school buildings. These buildings were in a poor state as a result of heavy rains, strong winds and flooding.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation saw it crucial to address this need and teamed up with Tinga Tinga Tales Foundation and Coca- Cola to form the Know and Grow Initiative.

This initiative aims at improving the learning environment in primary schools countrywide that have poor backgrounds.

Kolo Primary School benefited from classrooms, toilets and a greenhouse all valued at Ksh 1.95 million.

The Impact

Kolo Primary School now has a stable feeding program and the pupils no longer go hungry. The classrooms and toilets are also in good condition ensuring that they now concentrate better on learning.
