Kisimenyi Primary School... Kisimenyi Primary School is a few miles from our original cluster of schools.The headmaster, Amon, was transferred here from Jora Primary School at the start of 2010 and shortly afterwards invited us to visit. We were shocked by what we found. Though the village itself is very small, the school serves well over 550 pupils.However the facilities are wholly inadequate to serve this number of children.There are just nine tiny classrooms - all on the brink of collapse. A severe lack of latrines forces children to go in the bush and there is no water supply. Plans for the future Passing by Kisimenyi during a recent trip to Kenya our founder was asked by a child at the school, "When are you coming to our school?" We have answered the plea of that boy, the school and the wider village community with a promise to help them rebuild their school. Together we have put together an started work on an ambitious o rebuild an entirely new school at Kisimenyi, including:
twelve primary classrooms with furniture
furnished and stocked library
dedicated nursery school with playground and furniture
staffroom and office block
rainwater harvesting capabilities
modern sanitation facilities
energy-saving kitchen, and kitchen garden
Total projected cost = $240,000
