About the project
Katia Primary school is located in Museve location of Kitui Central constituency approximately 19 km from Kitui District Commissioner’s compound. The School was started in 1982 by the neighboring community with the aim of reducing the distance covered by children to Museve Primary School which is about 3 km away. Temporary iron-cladded classrooms were constructed progressively as the school grew but at least four of those structures were blown off by wind in January 2010. The school has six incomplete classrooms and in need of renovations. They also had insufficient sanitation facilities.
Katia Primary school is a beneficiary of Safaricom Foundation, Coca cola, and Tinga Tinga Tales Foundations having been identified by the District Education officer using the latest Constituency poverty index report as being one of the poorest schools in Kitui Central Constituency. The school was awarded a grant of KSh. 800,000 to put up a 50 capacity permanent classroom equipped with school desks. The Coca-Cola Company also sponsored by offering to construct sanitary facilities and provision of clean water.
The over 300 Pupils can now have a breath of relief as the new structures will enable them realize their dreams.
