Kioneki Primary School Rainwater Catchment System - Kenya

Kioneki Primary School Rainwater Catchment System - Kenya
Location
Njabini, Nyandarua County, Central Province, Kenya

Community Description
The Njabini community is located 8,000 feet high in the Aberdare Mountain Range. It is two hours from the capital city of Nairobi, and is the source of water and much of the food that is transported there.

Despite the fact that the area receives more rainfall than much of the country, the majority of the population does not have access to clean water, as the means of effectively catching and storing rainwater are severely lacking.

Problem Addressed
Kioneki Primary School is a young school, started only five years ago. Since its inception, the student population has steadily been increasing, from 130 students to the current 461 students. The staff consists of 14 teachers, the headmaster, and the deputy headmaster.

The school was partially funded by the government, but before completion, funding was terminated, leaving classrooms half-built, no staff offices, and no means of water collection for the students and staff.

Project Description
This project is to build a rainwater catchment system at the school.

The system will include a 10,000-liter water tank, gutters along the roof of the school building, and piping from the roof to the tank.

Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the tank, roof gutters, piping, and gutter hooks. Cement and ballast will also be purchased to build the base.

Stones, sand, and mesh will be provided by parents and staff of the school.

The members of Beautify Aberdare and the parents of the students will provide all of the necessary labor.
