Plans: Rainwater Catchment, VIP Latrines, Hand-Washing Stations and Hygiene/Sanitation Training. The Ebukanga Secondary students must report to school by 8AM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but many arrive earlier to study. On the remaining week days, normal classes start at 7AM. Lunch is from 1-2PM, and afternoon classes go until 4:30PM. Most students come from very poor households who cannot afford school fees. To help, school administration decided to accept any form of payment: trees for firewood, beans, maize, and chickens are common items given to the school. Local political leaders have also invested as much as they can; there is a Constituency Development Fund (CDF) that has paid for painting classrooms and building a dining hall. A member of the Kenyan Parliament is also helping by supplementing children’s school fees, which in turn helps pay the teachers’ salaries. This same member of parliament has donated 10 desktop computers so that students can learn basic skills. Principal Jeremiah Andayi told us that his goal is “not to force every students to get grade A by the end of their learning, but to grant every needy child a chance to go through the education system and change their destiny for the better.” However, there is a severe water shortage that impedes this goal.
Durato Dela is a very rural school located in the hills of Bensa, Ethiopia. Most of the children in this school are sons and daughters of farmers and cattle herders. This school is comprised of 857 girls and 1023 boys, nearly 2000 students.
Plans: Rainwater Catchment, VIP Latrines, Hand-Washing Stations and Hygiene/Sanitation Training. Malaha Primary School was established in 1993, starting with a student population of 167. It is sponsored by the Legio Maria Church. It presently has 857 students out of which 439 are boys and 418 are girls. The ECDE (early childhood development) section of the school has a total of 79 students, out of which 38 are girls and 41 are boys. Malaha Primary School employs a total of 29 teachers with another three in the ECDE section. The school’s motto is “Sacrifice Breeds Success.” Maybe this is what motivates its students to wake up and prepare for school at 6AM! They walk to school with a jerrycan full of water, which is immediately put to use cleaning classrooms. Students then sit in morning study hall for 30 minutes until normal classes at 8AM. After lunch, afternoon classes stretch until 3:45PM when students play games until they’re allowed to return home.
