About the project

The Challenge

Kedowa Secondary School for the Deaf is located in Kericho County. The school lacked a stable source of water due to its being located on a rocky ground.
The 100 students had to risk their lives to fetch water over the Kericho Nakuru Highway. This left little time for learning.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation invested Ksh 1,636,162 towards equipping the school with a water catchment project. The Foundation also built a greenhouse, a fish pond and donated a cow to the school. This school also received 2000 seedlings of various fruit trees, a water kiosk and spring protection and pumping that will ensure that you and the community have a constant supply of water.
This ties in with the Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 goals that aim to end poverty kin the world. Goal four seeks to provide quality education to all while goal 6 seeks to provide clean water and sanitation for all.

The Impact

With the water storage facility in place, the students will have access to clean water that will help them work better, have better sanitation and improve their hygiene and health standards within the school.
The greenhouse and the fishpond will act as an economic venture especially to the community who heavily rely on farming as a source of income.
Students will be able to learn new skills that will make them appreciate other forms of making money and boost their business studies.
