About the project

The Challenge

Kiuu Secondary School is located in Kalama, Machakos County was started in 2008. Before intervention from Safaricom Foundation, the students would walk to neighboring schools to be able to do their practical exams. Although there was a science lab that had been constructed by Safaricom Foundation, there were no equipment and thus the lab was not being utilized.

The Intervention

Science provides a powerful tool in promotion of social progress and efforts to provide a better standard of living, thus the students needed a good learning environment for them to post better results in the national examinations especially in the sciences. Through the Pamoja Initiative, Safaricom Foundation donated Ksh.500, 000 for the purchase of laboratory equipment.

The Impact

The students no longer visit other schools during practical exams, their laboratory is now fully equipped. They are able to do more practice ahead of national examinations as well as study in a conducive environment. With this facility, the school projects better performance in the national and school based examinations.
