Matioli K Salvation Army Primary School
Matioli K Salvation Army Primary School was established in the year 1989 by the surrounding community to eradicate illiteracy in the area. The school was started with temporary structures made of mud walls and roofs with iron sheets. It was later taken over by the government after it was registered by the Ministry of Education. The school is sponsored by Salvation Army Church and has produced learners who have passed exams and joined higher levels of learning institutions. Many students have secured reputable jobs in the government as well as in the private sector. The school is located within the interior part of Malava sub-county. The communication networks in the area are good because roads leading to the school are made of marrum - which undergoes maintenance from time to time by the county government of Kakamega. The community is made of farmers who grow small scale crops.

Nabalanga Isalmic School
Located in Uganda's Mukono District, Nabalanga Isalmic School currently serves 99 students and staff from the surrounding community. Although the school has a nearby well that its students and staff rely on for all of their water needs, the water is unsafe.
Nakifuma C/U Primary School
Serving approximately 1000 individuals in Uganda’s Mukono community, Nakifuma Church of Uganda Primary School currently relies on water from nearby piped water, but this source is often locked or otherwise inaccessible. The school also uses a rainwater collection system, but this does not provide nearly enough for such a large population - the facility spends roughly 120,000 Ugandan shillings on water related expenses a month. The new rainwater collection system will lead to saved money being put to use for bettering the school and church and improving life for the students at Nakifuma C/U Primary School.
