Kisimenyi School for 550+ Pupils in 2013



An extensive project to rebuild a dilapidated primary school in rural Kenya to benefit over 550 children - construction of classrooms, nursery school, fully stocked library and sanitation facilities

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Here, around 550 exuberant and ambitious children aged from 3-16 learn in shockingly desperate conditions. The tiny mud-walled classrooms - each crammed with well over sixty pupils - are in woeful states of disrepair. With collapsing tin roofs, crumbling floors so pot-holed they have disappeared altogether, and rusted wire mesh windows they are dingy, dangerous and depressing environments, wholly un-conducive to enjoyable and productive learning.

How will this project solve this problem?

We are rebuilding an entirely new school, to include the construction of twelve fully-furnished classrooms, a dedicated nursery school, a fully-stocked library, offices and a staffroom, rainwater harvesting capabilities, modern kitchen and sanitation

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will have a tangible, immediate and lasting benefit for the hundreds of children at the school now as well as for hundreds more in the future.
