ST. CAMILLUS DALE KIYE AND WE WORLD SUPPORT
The school has realized good support from St. Camillus Dala Kiye and We World Kenya Foundation way back in 2011 through education support. The support started by taking care of our pupils who were orphans. The organizations gave support in offering them treatment, paying school levies and also offering school uniforms. The collaboration of the two organizations has helped the institution a lot. They have made desks for pupils, gave three hand washing tanks and also dustbin kits for the school.
The project also constructed two Ventilation Improved Pit (VIP) Latrine blocks of four doors each for boys and girls in the school. This was done in the year 2017.In the same year a major renovation was done in eight classes and this made the school to look smart and clean. The old walls were repaired; floor excavated and plastered a fresh, construction of veranda for pupils to easily move and painting of the classroom walls both inside and outside. As a result of these support we got from the project, the school has realized a remarkable change interms of performance and health wise. The school has also recorded a good result in the year 2017.The school enrollment has really improved as a result of renovation and the support given by the organization. Some of the diseases that were brought about as a result of dirt were able to be curbed. The child population has also increased tremendously. As a result of all these the community is very happy with the support from We-World. We pray that God help you as you continue with the good deeds.
