Description
Kasyalani Mixed Day and boarding secondary school is a public school found in Kitui County, Kenya. The school started in 2009 by Kyandali village community members and primary school parents who wanted to offer secondary school education to children of the local area who had initially traveled long distances to access secondary school education. The school has realized its growth through support from parents, the government, and the Kitui county government. The school is found on a piece of land shared with Kasyalani primary school. The school has five classes, a staff room, an administration block, a kitchen, restrooms, and dormitories. The school’s primary water sources are four small tanks that are filled by local water vendors. The water often runs out. The school spends a lot of money on paying bills of water to sustain its population. This is money that would otherwise have been invested in school infrastructure and academic-related activities.

We will build a 104,000-liter rain tank for this school, making the others look tiny in comparison. Because of how rarely it rains in Southeastern Kenya, this tank’s large volume is designed to store as much water as possible during the seasonal rains, making more water available through the dry months. This water will benefit the students, teachers, and additional staff. Parents will mobilize the materials needed for construction, including sand, stones, and water. They will also lend their strength and time to help with the construction. We will complement their materials with a skilled artisan to lead the project and provide the tools, lumber, metal, cement, and gutter system. As soon as the tank has time to cure, it can begin collecting rainwater for the school’s use.
