About the project

The Challenge

Viyalo Primary School has a total of 397 pupils. This school suffers from congestion with a class having over 40 pupils. This allows very limited student-teacher contact, encourages conflict and respiratory diseases which greatly contribute to poor concentration which lead to poor academic performance generally.

The Intervention

The fourth Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) aims to ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy by 2030 as well as build and upgrade education facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive.
It was for this reason that the Safaricom Foundation invested Kshs 980,000 towards construction and furnishing of the new classroom towards decongestion and improved academic performance.

The Impact

The new classroom will serve the 48 Class One pupils with the number expected to double next year due to many ECD pupils. The new classrooms will also allow for a healthy student-teacher interaction, improve concentration in class as well as reduce the number of absenteeism due to respiratory infections.
