About the project

The Challenge

The school had limited toilets both for pupils and staff. The school which was started in 2007, saw its enrolment rise to 730 pupils. There were only 4 boys’ toilets and 4 girls’ toilets and a single toilet for staff which male and female teachers were sharing.

The stretched toilet resources led to pupils relieving themselves in bushes within the school compound which affected school hygiene. The few toilets were collapsing putting the safety of users at risk. The threat of waterborne diseases was affecting learning in the school as the hygienic conditions got worse.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation built an ablution block of 8 girls’ and 8 boys’ toilets at KES 992,000

The Impact

The additional toilets will improve hygiene at the school. The cases of water borne disease will reduce with more toilets in the school. The girls who are the majority will not be wasting time queuing for long to access their toilets.
