About the project
Pundo Kalanya Primary School was started in 1982 with a population of 20 pupils with one teacher and was later registered as a public mixed day primary school in 1984.
In 2000, the community members helped to put up five permanent classrooms with the support of other donors.
Currently the school has a population of 171 boys and 160 girls with 6 TSC teachers and 1 Board of Management (B.O.M) teacher.
However, the school still lacked enough classrooms to accommodate the pupils.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 19 goals that seek to end poverty by 2030. Providing quality education to all children is one of the goals set to be achieved. Safaricom Foundation has invested millions towards improving the standards of learning for children in marginalized regions.
Safaricom Foundation funded the construction and furnishing of a classroom in this school at a cost of Kshs 1.35 million.
The pupils can now learn comfortably in their new classroom. The teachers can also access their pupils more easily giving learning a better experience.
