About the project

The Challenge

The school was suffering from water scarcity. Every day, students used to draw water from the nearby stream wasting hours that could be spent studying. They often had confrontations with the local community fighting over water at the stream.

Students had begun dropping out because of the frustration and disruption caused by the lack of water in the school. Enrolment was gradually lowering because the school’s standing was affected by lack of the precious commodity.

The Intervention

 Safaricom Foundation through project champion Veronica Ogeto, funded the sinking of a borehole for KES 1.7 million.

 

The Impact

The borehole has improved the standards of the school by availing water to the students and staff, and promoting education by ensuring that students who had dropped out came back again while enrolment has steadily increased.

The teachers have time to finish the syllabus which has given the school a boost in academics, in fact, they produced their first ever student to be admitted into university.
