About This Project
One of the World Health Organization’s goals is to improve sanitation as a means of
reducing illness, increasing school attendance (especially girls), and educating children about the importance of good sanitation. We believe that these principles must first be introduced at the school level. With competing priorities for classrooms, text books, and desks, toilets and sanitation are often the last things that are considered in a school development project. Chekelei Secondary School currently has 375 students, 153 boys and 222 girls. There are also 32 teaching staff, 22 male and 10
female. Because of the large numbers of students, there is not an adequate number of toilet facilities at the school.
