Greetings from Kenya Rainwater Association!
This is to update you on the progress at Kwanjora Primary School. We received some donations and the construction of the water tank is underway.
Kenya Rainwater Association continues to promote improved washing needy rural primary schools in Kenya, through different partnerships, one of them being Global Giving. KRA and GG have had a long partnership spanning a period of 8 years, during this period, several schools have benefited from GG’s generous contributions with improved WASH facilities in their schools.
One of the outputs of the improved WASH project in this school is constructing a masonry water tank of 75m3 storage capacity and installation of guttering systems including a simple foul-flush system. We are happy to report that so far the construction of the tank is underway and could be completed by before the end year. The parents have contributed to excavating the tank foundation and this was a very good show of goodwill and appreciation.
It is our hope that we shall continue to receive your generous contributions so as to bring the construction of the tank to a good completion.
Kindly also remember that the girls in this school do not have adequate latrines and they are banking on your goodwill to assist them in getting permanent girls latrine block.
The following are some of the expected results of the improved WASH project at Kwanjora Primary School: (i) Provision of good quality water all the year-round for drinking and hand-washing, irrigation and other uses; (ii) Reduced time and energy saved by pupils in fetching water for drinking, cleaning and wetting/washing classroom floors (and washing hands) – hence more time to study and play; (iii) Reduced incidences of poor sanitation and hygiene-related diseases (e.g. diarrhea) due improved latrines, access and use of clean water, and good hygiene practices (i.e. hand-washing with soap).
