About the project

The Challenge

There were several shortcomings in infrastructure. The school’s special pupils did not have a modern class. The school of 700 pupils needed a reliable source of water. And the number of toilets were not enough.

The special pupils felt left out as other pupils had good classes to learn in. They suffered prolonged water rationing and shortages which would go for almost a month. They fetched water from a local spring near the school. This put them at risk of water borne diseases.

The toilets especially for girls were inadequate and fell short of the recommended 1 toilet to 25 girls ratio.  This brought about sanitation challenges.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation constructed a classroom, an ablution block of 4 toilets and a urinal and 1 water tank of 10, 000 litres. This was done at a cost of KES 900, 000.

The Impact

The 14 special pupils will have a conducive environment for learning.

The school will have a constant supply of water within their school compound which will help during the water rationing.

The toilets will improve sanitation in and around the school.
