COMMUNITY PROJECT: NYANSAKIA II PRIMARY SCHOOL

We are raising £50,000 to #SupportWaterRights and provide clean water and safe sanitation for children of Nyansakia II Primary School.

Watch our video of the school to see how your support will help make a difference.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Nyansakia II Primary School is a public school for girls and boys located in Kisii County, Kenya. Its mission is to produce all -round citizens that will be ready to develop their community. A sentiment reflected in the school motto, “Hard work pays”.

Unfortunately, the school is under-resourced and has only a handful of pit latrine cubicles for over 700 students. These facilities do not safely dispose of waste, which puts the children at risk of diseases and parasites, such as hookworms. And is worsened by the fact that many children attend school bare-foot, increasing transmission risk.

Those who cannot wait in the queue have no choice but to go to the toilet in the field. And there are limited water points for washing hands, greatly increasing exposure to infectious diseases.

OUR INVOLVEMENT

The school’s Board of Management wants the best for its pupils and the local community. They partnered with us to build:

A water borehole to provide clean drinking water

Two new toilet blocks, one for boys and one for girls

Now we are raising £50,000 to fund construction.

What we've done so far

Acquired land for the project

Source a local company to install the facilities and provide maintenance

Sourced a local architect to design the toilet block

Acquired a bill of quantities from a local quantity surveyor

Take a look at the new facilities for the schoolchildren, designed by ADC.

THESE NEW FACILITIES WILL:

Provide clean water and safe, stress-free hygiene facilities to over 700 students

Create a happier and healthier learning environment

Enable better academic and extracurricular outcomes

Provide local employment opportunities

Help stop the spread of COVID-19

Enable 700 children to claim their right to clean water and sanitation

NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The outbreak of COVID-19 has reinforced the need to make clean water and adequate sanitation facilities available to everyone.

Your support will give us the funds to carry out construction and means that the children of
Nyansakia II Primary School will have a safer, happier and healthier learning environment.
