Kapkemoi Primary has approximately 275 students, including early childhood students, and 4 permanent classrooms. The compound is large and is kept very neat.
The girl’s latrines have many cracks, making them unsafe for use. There are boy’s latrines and a staff latrine that are currently adequate. Kapkemoi currently has an older rainwater catchment tank which will be renovated and cleaned. The gutter system will be expanded and improved in quality and length. The school currently has a Bio Sand Filter (BSF) for water purification. This BSF filter needs to be recharged and second BSF will be provided.
There will be a new girl’s latrine block built with 8-10 stalls. The pit for the latrine will be at least 20 feet deep and reinforced with concrete piers. The bottom of the tank will be reinforced with concrete and steel. The pit will be constructed to allow a truck to come in and pump it out as necessary. The school has two teachers who have been trained in hygiene education. These teachers will supervise a student health club that will be tasked with educating all others about safe water use, the importance of hand washing, and latrine maintenance/cleaning.
H2O for Life is not a WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) project implementer. We have partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) implementing WASH in Schools projects around the world. Our NGO partners match funds needed for each school project. We also have a generous donor that provides us with an interest-free loan that, along with matching funds, allows for many projects to be started or possibly even completed before total funds have been raised. In rare situations we reserve the right to reallocate funds to alternate project(s).
