AIC Kaseve Primary School (Kenya)

Kenya

Titre : AIC Kaseve Primary School (Kenya)

Pays : Kenya

Date : 2021

Project Type : Rainwater Catchment
Program : Southeastern Kenya WaSH Program

Description
AIC Kaseve Primary School depends on students carrying water to the school and small rainwater harvesting tanks for all of their water needs, including drinking, cooking, and cleaning. As a result, there is never enough water to meet the demands of the large school population. The students must report to school by 6:30 am, carrying water for their use in school. When they arrive, the teacher on duty inspects the water carried by the students. Those who have failed to bring water are punished. Carrying water to school is a burden on the students. They arrive at school tired, leading to poor concentration in class.

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.
