Challenge

School children from poor backgrounds across Kenya are faced by a major sanitation crisis with average ratio of 30 pupils to 1 toilet, and this is threatening their future. The schools lacks enough toilets for the high population of pupils and the few toilets available are in deplorable conditions, are not safe for use, pose a health and environmental hazard. The schools are mixed with both girls and boys, and the shortage of these facilities interferes with privacy of each gender.

Solution

We will improve the school children's sanitary conditions, well being, privacy and productivity by constructing multipurpose user friendly toilet blocks. Human waste generated from these toilet blocks will be used to produce energy for preparation of meals in the schools kitchen. The bio gas byproduct which is ready for use manure will be used to grow high value food crops to be used to prepare meals in the school's kitchen and improve the nutritional status of the children.

Long-Term Impact

The sanitation project will create a confident and healthy school community and empower 700 school children, 60% being girls. Clean, safe and user friendly toilets will encourage the girls to stay in school during their monthly menstruation cycles. School going children will use clean sanitation blocks thus improving their learning conditions, performance and general growth. More food grown in the school's farm will be available for use thus reducing incidences where children miss lunch.
