About the project
The school had been experiencing water scarcity for a long time; piped water was not reliable. It was difficult for the school to run their school activities such as cooking for the students and cleaning. Additionally, the school was spending roughly KES 14,000 weekly to acquire the water boozers, money that could have been used to finance other projects.
Safaricom Foundation’s regional kitty installed three water tanks at a cost of KES 525,000.
There is enough water that will help maintain the health and sanitation of the school and the community at large. The school has a chance to harvest and store water that will also enable them adhere to the COVID-19 prevention protocols that is, regularly washing hands.
