Most public schools especially in rural areas lack basic infrastructure for instance classrooms, libraries, laboratories among others. This denies learners an opportunity to be competitive nationally.
Safaricom Foundation has through the Pamoja scheme has invested in public schools across the country to provide basic infrastructure such as dormitories, science laboratories, classes, toilets, libraries and offices. We have in the months of September 2016 and October 2016 handed over projects worth Kshs. 14million for 12 Pamoja projects across the country.
