About the project
Pupils used to carry water from home to be used in school or fetch water from a nearby river. The students were at risk of contracting waterborne diseases from untrusted water sources and COVID-19 infections since water was not readily available in school.
Safaricom Foundation’s Ndoto Zetu initiative donated a water tank and harvesting facility at a cost of KES 100,000.
The school is harvesting and storing water for use in times when there is rationing from the piped water. The students are washing hands regularly and maintaining hygiene.
