Essunza Primary School

Kenya 972 beneficiaries

Plans: Rainwater Catchment, VIP Latrines, Hand-Washing Stations and Hygiene/Sanitation Training. Essunza Primary School was founded in 1961 by the community members. It had a humble beginning with makeshift classrooms made of mud floors and walls, and grass-thatched roofs. It has now grown into a full-fledged primary school that even has an Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) section. The primary and the ECDE have 810 and 134 pupils respectively. There are also 25 teachers plus three support staff members employed, making the total school population stand at 972 people. Students report to school by 7AM with a full jerrycan of water. This is put straight to use while students clean their classrooms for the first 20 minutes of the day. The rest of the day is spent in normal classes but for an hour lunch break at 1PM. Afternoon classes stretch until game time at the end of the day. The majority of parents here are peasant farmers, but for the small percent engaged in business.

Gamachu Primary School GRADE 5

Ethiopia 103 beneficiaries

The Gamachu School is located in the rolling hills of West Arsi Ethiopia. Most children help their parents take care of cows, sheep, goats, chickens, and horses. School students walk to school–there are no cars in this part of the country. The kids are eager to go to school and their parents like sending their kids to school. It’s not like that in every community nearby, but at Gamachu School, student enrollment is increasing.

Abundant Grace Junior School

Uganda 40 beneficiaries

This school just opened in 2016, but there is no water source at the school for students or staff. The students fetch water from a “traditional well” – a dug pit in the ground that 200 other community members also rely on for water each day, and in the dry season, water supply is limited. The water is polluted, surrounded by dense vegetation, and located at the bottom of a steep slope. For these young primary school students, fetching water is dangerous and takes them away from time spent learning in class.
