The Challenge

According to a report by Centre of Education Innovations, only 2% of public schools in Kenya have functioning, well-stocked libraries. It is against such a background that Kamuchege Primary School found itself as it did not have a functioning library for the pupils to use.

The pupils lacked confidence in their academics because they had no space to read on and further on what they had learned. They had no opportunity to explore their reading skills. This led to poor academic performances.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation renovated the school’s library by equipping it with shelves, chairs, tables and computers. The equipment cost KES 800, 000.

The Impact

The pupils have a conducive learning environment with up to 80 learners being able to use the library at the same time. The school’s academics have improved a result of more learning opportunities offered by the library.
