Build School for 80 Students in Arid Kachuru Kenya
By Lucy Mathenge - Project Assistant
Kachiuru primary school management and parents has not been successful in addressing latrines issue in the school and no progress has been made towards repairing of the collapsed latrines. As earlier reported parents are not in a position to contribute towards repairing since the situation of their income has worsened and they have no reliable source of income as they are struggling hard to make the ends meet. The school management committee has requested various well-wishers to help them repair the latrines but so far no positive response from either of them. Pupils in the school are still sharing the few available latrines. We hope the situation will improve at some point. Together with our partners Friends of Kenya Schools and Wildlife (FKSW) we will continue with feeding program for this term which has started today after April holiday. This time it’s a bit challenging since most food stuff have increased in price and we had to adjust budgets to accommodate the extra costs of the food. Feeding program is a very important intervention considering the prolonged drought in the area many parents are struggling to feed their families and having lunch in school has been motivating many children. We are still fundraising for construction of a classroom and desks and we take this opportunity to thank all our well-wishers for their generous contribution towards Kachiuru community and we urge them to continue supporting the community as well as sharing with other potential well-wishers, we are optimistic that together we will improve lives of our less privileged communities. Thank you very much as you join hands in community development network.
