Emmanuel School Water and Sanitation Project – Kenya
This project is made possible through the partnership of WATER CHARITY and the NATIONAL PEACE CORPS ASSOCIATION.
Emmanuel School is a local community school in Kamiyawa Village. Students benefit from practical farm training provided by Organic Food Kenya (OFOK).
The current toilet facilities at Emmanuel school are dilapidated and have several issues concerning privacy, security, and hygiene. The level of cleanliness is very poor and there is no running water for the students to use to wash hands after visiting the latrine. Sometimes, children have to carry buckets from the nearby well to be used. Often, students defecate in the open.
The latrine will be a single building, with six stalls and a male urinal, with a division of areas for use by males and females.
A 3,000-liter water tank will be installed and connected to gutters attached to the building for the capture and storage of rainwater.
Small tanks and taps will be installed for handwashing.
Water Charity funds will be used to purchase the materials, including iron sheets, timbers, nails, cement, bricks, tanks, taps, and gutters, and to pay for transport of the materials. All work will be done by the OFOK team.
