Schools are supposed to be safe environments for children to learn in. However, many of our schools are still lacking in basic latrine facilities. The result is that children are often exposed to diarrheal diseases, hampering their ability to concentrate in their studies.

According to district health authorities, diarrheal illnesses contribute to 48% of child mortality.

Disease spreads quickly in cramped spaces with limited ventilation, where hand-washing facilities or soap are not available, and where toilets are in disrepair. Too often, schools are places where children become ill.

We have now built safe and clean toilets at four of our five primary schools and are currently fundraising to build at our new partner school in Baringo County.  Each school also has a water harvesting system in place, collecting rainwater and storing them in water tanks that they can access throughout the year.
