Summary

Roko 20 Academy plans to improve the quality of the classroom environment for all of our pupils by installing plywood protection beneath the current corrugated iron roofs, thereby providing thermal insulation during the unbearably hot dry seasons.

Challenge

Our classrooms were constructed using a concrete foundation and walls and roofs made from corrugated iron-sheeting, common in the rural parts of Kenya. Whilst these materials were cheap to buy it did little to prevent the overheating of the classrooms during the unbearably hot, dusty dry seasons affecting our pupils' ability to learn and function. In addition the noise from adjacent classrooms carries easily making it difficult for pupils to concentrate for periods of time without disturbance.

Solution

Roko 20 will install plywood protection beneath the current roofs to thermally insulate the classrooms from the corrugated iron. This has been experienced in one class and has proved very effective against heat. The reduced temperature allows pupils to feel more energised and the amount of dust and noise from adjacent classes will be significantly reduced. The children will be in a much better position to meet their educational goals with a cooler, quieter environment in which to learn.

Long-Term Impact

This project will ensure that our pupils' long-term educational goals are met. In other words, the thermally insulated classrooms will help make it easier for teachers to teach and for students to learn.
