About the project

The Challenge

Joytown Secondary School was established in 1980 and is one of the few public secondary schools for physically challenged students in Kenya. Student enrolment is 166 comprising of 87 girls and 79 boys. It had constructed a physiotherapy room and a sick bay through an earlier partnership, but the rooms lacked physiotherapy equipment and some nursing equipment.

The Intervention

The Safaricom Foundation donated physiotherapy and surgical equipment to the school, and this has contributed towards improved health and physical well-being of the students. The Foundation also purchased a 33-seater bus for the school, and, in partnership with General Motors, modified the bus to fit the needs of the students of Joytown School.

The Impact

The School is now not only well equipped, but also able to generate additional income from the sale of the eggs and bread; the proceeds from a poultry shed and bakery project that had been funded the previous year.
