This project will support the drilling of a borehole, construction of steel water tank and tower, providing clean water supply to over 1600 Ramba Boy's Boarding High School students. This will contribute to global sustainable development goals on " availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all" and "attain healthy life for all at all ages".
Ramba is a public boarding school currently housing more than 1600 students from different parts of Kenya. The school currently access water from a nearby lake, whose resource is not sufficient to meet the needs of the school and the community based on international standards for access to clean water and sanitation. The project will reduce the students' exposure to waterborne and water related diseases and pests such as cholera, dysentery, bedbugs and scabies.
Operation WATSAN project provides clean bore hole water, safe storage facility and piped water system to a public school. The students will be taught water and sanitation skills to ensure cleanliness and healthy bodies to keep them comfortable in class and attain even higher academic excellence.
Altogether, the project will supply clean and safe water to more than 1600 students annually; ensuring hygiene and sanitation in the school environment. This will contribute to derived development for the community in the larger Siaya County of Kenya. The project will contribute to the achievement of global sustainable social and millenium development goals
