Greetings! , I hope this report finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy
Due to COVID-19, I know that everyone is stressed out, but I hope and pray that normalcy will return so that we can get back to raising funds and to supporting the most vulnerable school going children.
Our goal remains to improve WASH infrastructure in Kenyan primary schools targeting children as ambassadors of change; and using schools as technology demonstration and capacity building centres for imparting water stewardship among children to enhance water resources management and environmental conservation
The project component includes construction of a rainwater harvesting tank, gender-segregated sanitary facilities (i.e. ventilated improved pit (VIP) latrines) – separate blocks for boys and girls, and teachers)
The number of units for each gender depends on the pupils: latrine ratio (i.e. 30 boys per unit and 25 girls per unit) as per national government policy. On unstable soils, lining is provided from the bottom of the pit, where on stable soils lining is not required and the latrine walls are supported by the concrete slab – which also include provisions for ventilation pipes and drop holes. The drop-holes also act as exhausting outlet – to dispose the waste when full, and hence they can serve for many years.
