Mutanga Primary School is located in Nyandarua County, Kenya. The climate is classified as semi-arid tropics with two rainy seasons (March-May) and (November-December). The school population is made up of 106 girls, 103 boys and 7 teachers.
Pupils fetch water from a stream about 300m away during the rainy season, but there is no water during the dry spells. The water is not drinkable and is used to wet the earthen class floors. Pupils carry individual water in small bottles for personal use from home. The existing latrines are inadequate, in poor condition and there is also no water or soap to wash hands.
Project Proposal: Construction of a 75m3 masonry rainwater storage tank, gender-segregated VIP latrines and a hand-washing station.
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).
